Lawton woman arrested after trying to set fire to store twice

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton woman is behind bars after she tried to set a Goodwill store on fire not once -- but twice.

Store managers say Mariana Martinez entered and exited the women's bathroom last Friday just moments before both fires were started. 

Martinez told police the first time she entered the women's bathroom in the store she smoked a cigarette and threw it in the trash, thinking it was out. The store was evacuated for smoke and was later cleared. The second time, Martinez says she went back into the bathroom and lit some toilet paper on fire and threw it in the trash can before telling managers.  

She was booked and now faces charges of first degree arson.
