Two fires, believed to be arson, damaged a home on West 18th Street on Tuesday (22) night. The Yuma Fire Department says they responded to the first call around 10pm in which a wheel barrel, a picnic table and a portion of a back fence was on fire.
Several hours later, the Yuma Fire Department responded to the same home, this time due to the gate being on fire. The flames spread to a nearby garage.
A female inside the home was transported to Yuma Regional Medical Center due to breathing difficulties.
The investigation by officials continues.
