A Missouri resident has been arrested and charged with arson in a March fire at Overland Park, according to court records.
Chrissy I. Carter, 28, of Lowry City, Missouri, was arrested Aug. 8 and charged with three counts of arson with risk of bodily harm, a misdemeanor, according to arrest and booking records from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. Carter is being held on $100,000 bond.
Crews responding to the fire at the Sheridan Ridge Townhomes in the 8400 block of Farley Street around 3 a.m. on March 19 saw fire and heavy smoke billowing from the apartment complex.
All residents had safely evacuated the building, but residents of eight units of the two-story complex were displaced, Jason Rhodes, a spokesman for the Overland Park Fire Department, said in March.
Firefighters had the fire under control within two hours.
There were no injuries and a local Red Cross chapter helped assist residents.
