Woman facing slew of charges after setting car on fire in Concord

CONCORD — A 33-year-old woman from New Hampshire is facing multiple charges following an incident in Concord yesterday.

Authorities say they received a call that a woman broke a window at a home on Leonard Hill Road at around 11:35 p.m.

Shortly after, police received a second call that a vehicle at a neighboring home was fully engulfed in flames.

When authorities arrived, the fire was spreading to two other vehicles, a camper, and a home.

The Concord Fire Department says successfully extinguished the fire without incident.

Police say that Nikki Lucas, of Lyman NH, caused the vehicle fire.

The fire resulted in the complete loss of the vehicle, along with damage to other cars and structures on the property.

A family of four was asleep in the home when the incident occurred.

Following an investigation, police allege that during the fire Lucas threw a large rock through a window of another home.

She was placed under arrest and transported to the St. Johnsbury State Police barracks for processing.

She is charged with third-degree arson, felony unlawful mischief, unlawful mischief, reckless endangerment, and attempted unlawful trespass into an occupied dwelling.
