Big Bear Sheriff Deputies and Big Bear Fire Department Fire Fighters responded immediately to a report off a structure fire, Friday at approximately 7:30 A.M. The residential structure fire located in the 400 block of East Big Bear Blvd. in Big Bear City was reported to be fully consuming the residence.

There was no indication of anyone inside the burning house; however, several witnesses reported seeing a female leaving the location on foot after discovering the house was on fire.

Fire Fighters worked quickly and efficiently to extinguish the flames. The fire did not spread to any surrounding vegetation or neighboring residences. Detectives of the Bomb/Arson Division of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department responded to the location to conduct an investigation. 

As a result of the investigation and the public’s assistance, a suspect identified as 42-year-old Lorena Perez Cody was identified and taken into custody. Cody was booked at West Valley Detention Center on felony charges of arson, and remains in custody on $250,000 bail. An arraignment hearing in this matter is scheduled for May 19, 2015 at San Bernardino County Superior Court
