NORTH CANTON, Ohio - A woman will spend three years in prison for a fire that damaged three homes in North Canton, police said.

On April 12, 2012, 41-year-old Rose Ann Butts intentionally set fire to the house she was living in on McKinley Avenue, North Canton police said. The fire damaged two neighboring houses.
