QUEEN ANNE'S COUNTY, Md. - A Chester woman is facing charges after state fire officials said she set her neighbor's trash on fire.

According to the Office of the State Fire Marshal, 61-year-old Karen Cossaboon has been issued a summons on charges of second-degree malicious burning and arson of trash containers.

Investigators said Cossaboon walked over to her neighbor's property at 210 Newtown Road in Chester, poured a flammable liquid on a pile of trash that was near the neighbor's house and then set the trash on fire. According to state fire marshals, the neighbor was home at the time and saw Cassaboon leaving the scene.

If convicted, state fire marshals say Cassaboon could face a maximum penalty of 18 months incarceration and a $500 fine for the malicious burning charge and 30 days incarceration and a $500 fine for the arson charge.
