Iowa City authorities make arrest in 2011 fire

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities in eastern Iowa have arrested a woman they say intentionally set a fire that injured a firefighter more than two years ago.

Iowa City police arrested 25-year-old Nicole Kramer, of Carter Lake, on Wednesday. She is charged with first-degree arson.

A structure fire in January 2011 burned the hands of a firefighter trying to contain the damage. Authorities later determined that the fire was intentionally set with gasoline.

Officials did not release details about the investigation, or how they linked Kramer.

Kramer was taken to the Johnson County Jail. Court records do not list an attorney.
