TULSA - A Sapulpa woman confessed to police that she had set her ex-boyfriend's home on fire after she was caught just blocks away running from the scene, investigators say.
Maj. Jeff Gilliland of Sapulpa PD tells KRMG they got the call shortly before midnight Sunday night.
Witnesses called in the fire in the 600 block of S. Hiawatha and said they saw a woman running from the burning home.
Several officers responded to the area, and one of them spotted a woman matching the suspect's description.
He stopped her for questioning, and that's when Tamanda Billings reportedly told the officer what had happened.
"After the officer approached her, she blurted out that she did it, and that she was the one who set the house on fire," Gilliland told KRMG.
She was arrested for 2nd degree arson, since the house was unoccupied at the time of the fire.
Gilliland said the two had apparently fought, and that she returned to the home and set the fire.
No one was hurt.
