CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local college student was in court Tuesday, where she pled guilty to setting a series of fires at her school.

Jordan Cullen, 18, pled guilty to one count of arson for setting a series of fires at the College of Mount St. Joseph back in March. The fires caused about $20,000 in damage.

Five fires were reported in two buildings on the campus in a half hour time period. No one was hurt, but a student did die after suffering from a heart attack while waiting outside the building. Cullen did not face any charges relating to the death.

She will be sentenced on August 6.
