    Chief Brandon Pursell said, "the actions of Jacquelyn Talley endangered 7 innocent lives of the people living in this apartment, not to mention destroying all their possessions. I would like to commend the hard work of our fire investigators here at DCFD for their thorough investigation and removing this arsonist from our community. We are very fortunate that we did not have any serious injuries or loss of lives from this intentionally set fire".

    It's estimated that the fire Talley set has a property loss value of $215,000.
