Minn. Woman Accused Of Burning Own Home In Jail

MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — A rural Barnesville woman wanted in a series of fires at her western Minnesota home has turned herself in.

Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist says Tara Andvik surrendered Thursday at the jail.

KFGO-AM reports an arrest warrant was issued for Andvik last week. She faces first-degree arson charges and is expected to appear in court Friday.

The Forum of Fargo, N.D., reports one of the fires in October destroyed the home where Andvik lived with her husband and two children.

Andvik’s attorney, Steve Mottinger of Fargo, declined comment Thursday.

      That’s what I thought too — I’m not sure why I even clicked on this link now.

      I thought maybe she had something rigged to her phone or something and she pushed *69 and it started her home on fire.

    What does this do to her chances of becoming a ‘cco good neighbor?
