EUREKA // On August 21st, officers arrived on the 2200 block of Broadway to investigate a “fire at a vacated motel office.”
Witnesses reportedly described two women fleeing from the scene — one of whom was later identified there at the scene as 30-year-old Kattie Yocum.
Police believe Yocum set the fire after a disagreement with the property owner. She has since been arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on suspicion of arson.
Those who may have information relevant to the investigation are encouraged to contact Eureka PD at (707) 441 – 4044.
