LAUDERHILL (CBSMiami) – A Miami police officer’s home was set ablaze, an act of arson allegedly sparked by an ex-girlfriend unhappy the relationship’s flames had died.

Nancy Brewer, 25, was charged with first-degree arson and was ordered held on $50,000 bail during her first appearance court hearing Friday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

The Miami woman is accused of setting fire to the home of Travis Lindsey, a road patrol sergeant for the Miami Police Department.

According to a police report, Brewer drove to Lindsey’s home on Northwest 14th Court shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday “because she was upset about the status of their relationship.”

Police said Brewer then poured gasoline around the house and tied a cloth around the front door, which she ignited along with five floor mats.

Brewer took off, dialed 911 and drove to the Miami Police Department. There, she told authorities that she was turning herself in because she might have hurt an officer.

Brewer declined to talk to Lauderhill police investigators without an attorney present.

Jail records show that she was transferred from Miami-Dade County jail to Broward’s jail on Thursday.
