Tyler police detained a woman after a patrol car was set on fire within a secure rear parking lot of the law enforcement complex.

Martin said officers who scrambled to move nearby vehicles away from the flames came upon a woman standing in the corner of the fenced area.

Police believe the 19-year-old woman from Lindale started the police car on fire. She'll face felony arson and misdemeanor criminal trespass charges.
