A woman faces arson charges after police say she drunkenly started a fire in her ex-boyfriend's house with a pound of bacon and a lit burner.

32-year-old Cameo Adawn Crispi of Vernal, Utah, allegedly called and texted her ex-boyfriend several times in March from inside his home, The Associated Press reports.

The man wasn't home and called police saying he wanted Crispi removed from his house. When officers arrived, they saw smoke billowing out the front door. Apparently, Crispi had placed a pound of bacon on a lit burner. In the home, officers discovered hot coals on the floor around an open wood stove and the burned bacon. Charging documents say Crispi's blood-alcohol level was 0.346, four times the legal limit. She faces arson, burglary and other charges.
