MINERSVILLE -- Police have arrested a woman who they believe set fire to a home in Schuylkill County.

Flames tore through the building on Spruce Street in Minersville around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say Kasha Higgenbotham, 28, told them she lit a blanket on fire inside the building but didn't think it would get out of control.

We're told two cats died in the fire. Three were rescued, and two more are missing.

The four people who lived here are being helped by the Red Cross.

There is no word what started the fire.
