A Northampton County woman charged with setting her own home on fire has admitted to the crime.

Karla Dewey, of Nazareth, pleaded guilty Friday to charges of arson and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say she started a fire at her house on North Green Street in March of 2012.

A total of three homes were damage.

Dewey will be sentenced next Friday.
