A Dearborn County woman was arrested in Hamilton County after being accused of trying to burn her house down while her son was still in it.

Police say that on October 13, 2011, Vanessa Dean attempted to burn her house down On Alpine Dr. in Hidden Valley, Indiana. Her 4-year-old son was still inside the house.

Thanks to emergency crews that arrived on the scene, the 4-year-old was able to survive the fire.

Dean was arrested in Hamilton County after police received a tip that she was in an apartment in Miamitown. She was arrested Friday, and is currently awaiting extradition to Dearborn County.

Dean is charged with attempted murder, arson, and neglect of a dependent.
