A homeless woman is facing arson charges after authorities accused her of setting fire to a vehicle at the Las Vegas Fire Department headquarters.

Barbara Gooden, 44, was arrested Tuesday and also is accused of trying to start a vehicle fire on the Zappos campus next to the Fire Department’s headquarters.

Fire officials said a security guard prevented the fire at the Zappos campus, located at the intersection of Fourth Street and Stewart Avenue in downtown Las Vegas.

The officials said gasoline then was used to start the fire in a vehicle at the Fire Department’s headquarters. The vehicle, valued at $20,000, was destroyed.

Gooden is being held at the Clark County Detention Center on two arson charges.
