Aza Jerome, the Maine woman recently found safe after missing for a week, has been charged with setting two fires at her own house the day she disappeared.

Aza Jerome is a 56 year old woman who went missing from her Bucksport home over a week ago. She was found in Orland at the Craig's Brook fish hatchery. Authorities charged her in connection to the fires after she was released from Eastern Maine Medical Center. Police say the fires caused more than $50,000 in damages to the house and a nearby shed.

Authorities also arrested 61 year old, Timothy Jerome when police indicated he wasn't complying with "some of the things officers were asking of him after the fire".
