AFD examines arson entrapment

June 26, 2003

Albany-- Investigators are trying to find out who set an Albany apartment on fire, and why they wanted to hurt the two women inside the home.

About 4:30 this morning, Albany fire trucks were called to the Nottingham North Apartment Complex.

Twenty-year-old Sheena Scott and 19-year-old Ki-Methia Wilkerson were in the home asleep, when they were awakened by smoke. Investigators say someone intentionally set a fire between the sleeping women and the door, so they could not escape.

Firefighters rescued the two women through an upstairs window with a ladder truck. No one was injured.

But now investigators want to know who set the fire, and why they wanted to hurt the two women.
