Woman arrested in Mt. Vernon fire

MT. VERNON, Ohio – A Knox County woman is due in court this week, accused of torching an apartment building.

Amber Pilotti was arrested yesterday on aggravated arson charges.

Pilotti allegedly set fire to a Mount Vernon apartment building last week, causing extensive damage to the building.

The death of a man whose body was found in the rubble was unrelated to the fire, authorities said.
