A Tucson woman who intentionally set fire to her home will serve 2.5 years in jail.

Sabrina Phillips, who had pleaded guilty to arson of a structure and criminal damage, received the sentence Tuesday. In February, she burned down her home in the 3400 block of East 28th Street.

Phillips confronted police officers while holding lighters in both hands. The officers hit her with a taser before arresting her.
