KANDIYOHI - Two women are in custody at the Kandiyohi County Jail on suspicion of arson charges.

According to a news release from the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a 911 call from a home in the 10000 block of 30th Avenue Northeast at about 8:30 p.m. Friday. While they were en route to the home, another call to county dispatch said a 23-year-old woman had suffered a possible broken ankle.

After arriving at the home, deputies smelled smoke and found that a small fire had started in a bedroom. They were able to extinguish the fire, and the home had minor damage.

The woman was taken to Rice Hospital where she was treated for her ankle injury and released.

Deputies later arrested the injured woman and a 25-year-old woman on suspicion of arson.
