Albany -- The owner of an Albany Habitat for Humanity house is charged with torching it.

An arson warrant has been taken for 35 year old Jennifer Kelly. Kelly owns this Habitat house on Forsyth Street in South Albany. It burned July 23rd.

 Arson investigators say Kelly sold her furniture and appliances the day before the fire, and even told people she was going to burn it.

Habitat plans to rebuild the home. Flint River Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Stacey Driggers said "We of course have insurance as well as the mortgage holder. So our interests are protected through that insurance. We should be able to rebuild."

Investigators say Jennifer Kelly used a candle to set the bed on fire. If convicted she could face one to 20 years in prison.
