BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Police have arrested a 32-year-old woman accused of burning down her ex-boyfriend's home in Berkeley County.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office arrested Ann Fye and charged her with arson. It all started Monday evening when deputies responded to a home on Krakul Lane in St. Stephen in reference to an arson.
