Arlington - Arlington Police are now trying to figure out how a woman was set on fire in her own home. Police responded to the home after a man dialed 911 and said someone was on fire.

When they arrived on the scene, police found the man's girlfriend, 33 year old Sabrina Strafford with first and second degree burns covering 35% of her body. She was taken to the hospital and then life flighted to the burn unit in Augusta.

"She advised me that the light in the laundry room did not work so she was using a charcoal lighter to see," said Chief Casey Taylor. That's "when a gallon of gas fell off the shelf on top of her and ignited."

Chief Taylor said when he went to the home he noticed that her story conflicted with the evidence, and that's when he called the fire Marshall's office.

Strafford's family and friends say there had been no problems between her and her boyfriend.
