KEIZER, Ore. -- Negotiators talked with a Keizer woman for more than two hours Sunday night and persuaded her to safely surrender after threatening to set a house on fire because of a fight with her boyfriend.

When they went inside, police and firefighters found gasoline had been poured around the residence but not ignited.

The woman was jailed for charges that included attempted arson.

The boyfriend had left the home to flag down an officer.
