WEST VALLEY CITY -- Formal charges are now filed against a woman who police say admitted lighting her home on fire.

The flames spread and caused about $5,000 in damage.

Schwalger is also charged with criminal mischief, intoxication and disorderly conduct.

She is being held in the Salt Lake County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
