On January 14, just after 1:30 a.m., officers were dispatched to a home on Kiley Lane in reference to a call for service assisting the Charlotte Fire Department with a house fire.

Witnesses called 911 after seeing a fire at the home. The witness then woke up the residents inside the home.

The witnesses and victim then saw a woman they knew outside, the report states.

The Charlotte Fire Department arrived and extinguished the fire with minimal damage to the home. As a result of the actions by the witness there were no injuries, officials said.

The victim and witness were able to provide a detailed description of the woman to the responding officers, and they were able to locate her at her home.

After conducting their investigation, detectives from CMPD's Arson Unit and CFD Investigators were able to obtain warrants against Ms. Rosaldo-Garcia, 33, for first degree arson and malicious damage by use of an incendiary.

Rosaldo-Garcia was arrested the same day and taken to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office.
