Youngstown woman to be arraigned on arson charges

YOUNGSTOWN

An East Ravenwood Avenue woman is expected to be arraigned today in Municipal Court on arson charges after police and firefighters say she lit her home on fire early Saturday morning after she was involved in an argument with several people inside.

Debra Silvers, 47, 270 E. Ravenwood Ave., was arrested on the charges of aggravated arson and domestic violence after firefighters and police were called to the home about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

Witnesses told police, who were called to the home for a fight, that Silvers had been out and had come very drunk and was arguing with the people inside the house. Reports said witnesses told police Silvers pulled a woman’s hair then threatened to kill everyone inside and sprayed lighter fluid in the bathroom on the shower curtain and set it on fire. One of the men in the house tried to put the fire out by throwing water on it but reports said Silvers squirted him with lighter fluid and he left.

Officers went inside to find Silvers but she refused to come out despite heavy smoke. Police had to grab her and carry her outside.

The fire caused minimal damage. Silvers was treated for smoke inhalation before being taken to the Mahoning County jail to await her arraignment.

Hey! Indeed, so long as my two sisters, brother, and their father can find a place so their all safe.
As for this psycho..whom is my bio mother, stays in Jail for a very, very, long time.
Until then, i'd like to see them have enough time to find a place first.
But I was not there when this was happening. As I live somewhere else.
