Napa woman suspected of arson near Lake Berryessa

Suspected arsonist Debra Ann Windholz was in custody Wednesday following her arrest in connection with 11 suspicious fires near Lake Berryessa, according to Cal Fire.

Windholz, 59, was arrested about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday on 11 counts of arson to forest land. Bail was set at $500,000.

Cal Fire released no details on the fires other than they occurred in 2016 and 2017, but officials said Windholz wasn’t involved in the Oct. 8 firestorm in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties.
