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.
