MASON CITY | A Mason City woman was arrested for felony second-degree arson after setting a house on fire Saturday in Mason City, police say.

Donyale Jones, 29, is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on a $10,000 bond. 

Mason City police and fire departments responded to a fire around 1:50 p.m. at 218 Eighth Place Southeast, according to a news release. 

Upon arriving at the scene, police say the structure was fully engulfed in flames. 

Mason City firefighters were able to put out the fire with no personal injury or further property damage. Keith Riser owns the property on contract from Nick and Rita Zahariades, according to county assessor records. 

“During the initial response, police personal were provided information that the fire was intentionally set,” the release said. 

The Mason City Police Department Criminal Investigation Division along with the fire department and state fire marshal’s office conducted a joint investigation.

A hearing hasn't been scheduled for Jones. If convicted, she could face up to 10 years in prison.
