Huntsville police have arrested a woman in connection to Tuesday morning's apartment fire that sent four people to the hospital.

Ebony Nicole Hill, 29, is charged with one count of first-degree arson, three counts of first-degree assault and one count of third-degree assault.

Police say Hill intentionally set fire to her apartment in the 800 block of Hundley Drive then ran outside. The fire spread to an adjoining apartment with an adult and two juveniles inside.

The 10-year-old and 15-year-old were rushed with critical injuries to the burn unit at UAB Hospital in Birmingham. Their current conditions are not yet know,

The 40-year-old male sustained serious injuries after jumping from the third floor.

A firefighter was also injured after falling from the third floor. A Huntsville Fire & Rescue spokesman said the he has since been released from the hospital.

Hill is currently in the Madison County Jail. Jail records show bond has not been set yet.

One of Hill's neighbors, Ashley Petty, says she lost everything in the fire.

"We got water damage, smoke damage, fire damage, everything is gone," she said.

Petty said when she turned and looked around, the entire apartment was on fire.

"It's horrible that someone would just set our apartment on fire especially that it was kids upstairs," Petty said.
