Firefighters say they had the added challenge of extinguishing the fire amidst multiple downed power lines. KU responded to the scene and isolated the power for crews at the scene.

Fire crews say the camper was destroyed and a neighboring home had minor heat damage, but no one was injured.

Investigators say Tiffany Nicole Roberts was later charged with arson (2nd degree), disorderly conduct (2nd degree), and terroristic threatening (3rd degree). She's being held in the Fayette County Detention Center.
