57-year-old Kimberly Kincannon was jailed this week on an outstanding warrant from Valentine’s day, which alleges she set her neighbor’s house on fire after an argument about money. Harold Pendergrass told police that Kincannon owed him money, and he attempted to collect it, which upset her. She started yelling and acting erratic. They live in the same apartment complex, and Pendergrass went back to his apartment when she started to yell at him. Later that night, he woke up from his dog barking at his front door. When he opened his front door, he saw a bottle of lighter fluid, and his front door was engulfed in fire. During a follow-up interview on March 9th, Kincannon explained to police that although the lighter fluid was hers, she didn’t ignite it, but if she had, “it would have been with a lighter.”
Kimberly M. Kincannon was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 19th, charged with aggravated arson. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $50,000.
