A woman admits to setting her own house on fire with a propellant.

Firefighters were called to the home on Buchanan just after 6:30 PM Wednesday night. Fire crews could see flames and smoke coming out of the windows, and they put out the fire within an hour. No one was hurt.

Billings Police have arrested the woman who lives in the home and admits to setting the fire. That same woman called 911, and she eventually admitted to starting the fire. Investigators describe her as a Hispanic woman in her late 40's.

She is being held in the Yellowstone County Detention Facility for questioning.
