A woman was arrested Wednesday night after multiple grass fires were spotted in southeast Colorado Springs.
Just before 8 p.m., the fire and police department personnel responded to multiple grass fires in the area of Hancock Expressway and Circle Drive, police reports said. Officers noticed a woman, identified as Nicole Green, wandering in the center median on Circle north of the burned field. Police say she admitted to starting the fire and then resisted arrest.
Police arrested Green on suspicion of setting the fires and for obstruction.
