Posted: Updated:

PEARL RIVER COUNTY, Miss. - A Picayune woman is behind bars for setting her own house on fire.

Police say 47-year-old Inez Hinton is in jail for setting her home on fire on June 12.

Hinton is being held on $20,000 bond.

Authorities say firefighters had to force their way into the house and found several piles of belongings scattered around the residence that had been set on fire.

Matches were found in the kitchen.

Investigators determined that over the past several months a bank had repossessed Hinton's home.

He says Hinton was delivered an eviction order on the same day as the fire.
