Officials: St. Petersburg woman arrested after Tampa car fire

TAMPA – A woman was arrested after police say she set her ex-boyfriend's car on fire early Thursday.

Stephanie Salinas, 28, of St. Petersburg, was charged with second-degree arson. She remained in Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail.

Tampa Fire Rescue said they responded to a car fire at 2345 W Saint Conrad Street. The fire marshals office discovered the fire was intentional. The car, a 1998 Kia Sephia, had $2,000 in damage.

An investigation showed the incident was the result of a domestic dispute involving Salina's ex-boyfriend, whom she had recently broken up with. A warrant was issued for her arrest and St. Petersburg police picked her up.
