A woman was sentenced to three years in state prison on Monday for setting fire to a building on Pearl Street, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Erin Micco, 30-year-old, previously pleaded guilty to second-degree aggravated arson before Passaic County judge Joseph Portelli.

Micco was arrested and charged in connection with the two-alarm fire that began at 13 Pearl Street at around 8:41 a.m. on November 17, 2020.

She allegedly set fire to the vacant building. She used a lighter to set fire to garbage to light the building on fire.

Fire damaged the residence at 15 Pearl Street, but did not cause displacement of residents.

No one was injured in the blaze.

Micco will have to serve 85 percent of the sentence before becoming eligible for parole. After release, she will be subject to three years of parole supervisor. She also has to pay $1,000 in restitution to one of the victims of her crime.
