ODESSA - An Odessa woman was arrested for intentionally setting a car on fire last month.

25-year-old Janal Cox was arrested on Wednesday for felony arson charges.

Firefighters were called out to a vehicle fire at the Fairgreen Apartments back on December 23.

A fire inspector noticed the flames had sparked up in the front seat and spread to the truck next to it.

When officials spoke with cox and another person who owned the vehicles, she told them they hadn't been in the vehicle for about 30 minutes.

Surveillance video showed the pair get inside the car then leave after the fire started.

Cox is currently being held on a $25,000 bond.
