MOUNT AIRY, Md. (AP) — The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a woman who allegedly set a fire in her Mount Airy home last month.

Forty-seven-year-old Patricia Jane Cullop has an outstanding warrant for first-degree arson.

Authorities tell The News-Post of Frederick that on Nov. 19, Cullop set a fire in the kitchen area of the home on Old Bartholows Road and locked herself in the attic. She then called 911.

Officials say emergency responders found Cullop in the attic, suffering from smoke inhalation. She was taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

Cullop is believed to be in the Frederick County area.
