Police have arrested a woman after she allegedly lit her boyfriend's home on fire when she found out he was cheating on her.

Corinne Latraverse, 30, of Woonsocket, was charged with arson.

Latraverse on Saturday allegedly set fire to an apartment building at 26 Monty Avenue where she lived with her boyfriend. The blaze quickly got out of control and engulfed the entire building, drawing firefighters from across the region. Two firefighters fell when part of a floor collapsed, though they didn't suffer major injuries, according to WPRI-TV.

The fire left eight people homeless.

Rollo Tomasi, , you have a problem with illegals on Long Island also? Rhode Island is illegal central-the Governor wants to give illegals drivers licenses.

This shows up in my local California news feed. Not general, but local (as in Glendora) I do not care for this new change in how my news is displayed.
