PAULDING COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Police have arrested a woman and charged her with 14 counts of arson after multiple homes in a Hiram community were destroyed by a Sunday morning fire.

Adrienne Satterly, 41, was arrested Monday and charged with 14 counts of first-degree arson and three counts of aggravated animal cruelty. She was denied bond during a court appearance Wednesday morning.

Hiram police say Satterly started the fire at her home on Rosemont Court that ultimately spread to 19 other homes in the Greystone Subdivision. They say she was upset over losing her home in a divorce.

At least four homes were destroyed and two others have major damage on Rosemont Court.

Investigators say 14 additional homes suffered varying degrees of heat and smoke damage.

Approximately 20 people are displaced.

“This suspect committed a heinous act that threatened the lives of her neighbors and our first responders,” said Deputy Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Jay Florence. “I commend the efforts of the fire investigators and detectives who worked on this case.”

Red Cross is providing food, clothing, lodging, replacement medications and other essentials to those displaced families.

A community center at 217 Main Street is also open for those affected by the fires.
