VICTORVILLE – On Wednesday at around 5:05 p.m. the dumpster enclosure behind the old Target store located in the 14000 block of Amargosa Road burst into flames. A homeless woman, identified as Amanda Bolin, 27, who appeared to be shaken could be seen attempting to retrieve her items which appeared to be stored in the enclosure. Two off-duty or plain clothes law enforcement officers assisted the woman while deputies and county firefighters were en route.
Bolin reported that a male subject who was known to her hit her, took cash from her, started the fire before leaving the area. Deputies from the Victorville Station arrived and a San Bernardino County Fire Department fire engine, Battalion Chief, a Fire Investigator, and an AMR ambulance responded to the scene.
Bolin was found to have a lighter and flammable liquid in her possession. She was arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center for aggravated arson and is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail. She is scheduled to appear at the Victorville Superior Court on Friday afternoon. The fire was extinguished by 5:15 p.m. No one was injured as a result of the incident.
