A not guilty plea Friday in District Court from a woman accused of setting her house on fire. 46-year-old Hermalinda Ramirez is charged with arson and two counts of assault with a weapon. Billings police say she admitted to burning her own house February 12th. Court documents show Ramirez had a metal pipe wrench in her bag the night of the fire. She told police she got angry after thinking people stole from her so she went to a Conoco store and purchased a gallon of gas to pour around the house. A police investigation shows Ramirez went to her sister's house after and threatened to hit her sister and nephew with the metal wrench.
