POTSDAM, N.Y. -- A North Country woman has been charged with arson. It stems from a fire on October 25th along Pierrepont Avenue in Potsdam.

Investigators say Brandi Saumier, 21, from Winthrop, started a fire in her bedroom while nine people were inside the home. Everyone was able to escape without getting hurt.

Saumier was a student at SUNY Canton at the time of the fire, but has since withdrawn. She was charged with arson in the second degree and is being held on $5,000 cash bail. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
