A Mason City woman faces fire and child endangerment charges after police say she poured gasoline over a pile of clothing that set a house on fire on Friday night.

City police and fire personnel responded to a report of a house fire at 225 13th Place NE at 8:20 p.m., according to a release issued by MCPD.

All residents were out of the home, but during the ensuing investigation Aleah Rae Harris, also known as Aleah Rae Duda, 25, who lives in the home, admitted to police she poured the gas over the clothing and ignited it while her 3-month-old child was still inside, though Harris got the child out, according to the release.

Harris was arrested and charged with one serious misdemeanor count of reckless use of fire and an aggrevated misdemeanor count of child endangerment.
