Jazmin A. Martinez, 24, of Round Lake Beach.

A woman was taken into custody after authorities say she intentionally set a pickup truck on fire, resulting in a house being damaged by the blaze in Round Lake Beach Saturday morning.

The Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District and Round Lake Beach Police Department responded around 12:21 a.m. Saturday to the 1600 block of Grove Drive in Round Lake Beach for a report of a vehicle fire.

The response was soon upgraded to a possible structure fire while fire crews were still responding, prompting the response of additional fire departments.

Officers arrested Jazmin A. Martinez, 24, of Round Lake Beach, in connection with the incident.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Lillian Lewis said Martinez was the one who called 911 to report the fire, which involved her neighbor’s vehicle.

Surveillance video showed Martinez pouring some kind of liquid on the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado and then setting it on fire, Lewis said.

The fire also damaged a nearby home. Martinez admitted to pouring lighter fluid on the victim’s car and starting the fire, Lewis said.

Officers learned Martinez and the owner of the vehicle had been seeing each other.

The two got into a verbal argument over the relationship before the arson was committed, Lewis said.

Martinez was charged with one count of arson, a Class 2 felony.

The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office filed a petition to detain Martinez pending trial.

Lake County Judge Michael Betar ordered Martinez held in the Lake County Jail while she awaits a detention hearing.

The detention hearing is scheduled for Monday afternoon and will determine whether Martinez remains in custody pending trial.
