Standish woman charged in three arsons

| October 2, 2011

State fire investigators arrested a 65-year-old Standish woman late Friday, charged her with three arsons and alleged she is a suspect in 15 other fires in Cumberland and York counties.

Carol Field was being held at the Cumberland County Jail on $100,000 bail Saturday. She is expected to make an initial court appearance this week.

The Maine Department of Public Safety said Field was charged with setting:

• a fire on July 26 that heavily damaged the Raymond Hill Baptist Church;

• a Sept. 16 fire at a vacant house on Central Avenue in Limerick;

• and a fire in September 2010 outside Plummer's Hardware Store in Waterboro.

According to spokesman Steve McCausland, a team of fire marshal investigators, agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Maine Forest Service rangers and deputies from York and Cumberland counties investigated the fires over the summer. Field became a suspect early last month after a witness saw a car leaving the scene of a fire and was able to give investigators a partial license plate number.
