(CBS/AP) PARKSLEY, Va. - A woman was arrested early Tuesday in connection with the latest of more than 70 arsons on Virginia's Eastern Shore.

Tonya Bundick, 40, was arrested shortly after a vacant residence in the town of Melfa was set on fire. The fire was reported at 11:40 p.m. Monday and it was quickly extinguished with minimal damage.

Bundick was held Tuesday at the Accomack County Jail without bond on arson and conspiracy charges.

There were more than 70 arsons in Accomack County since November 2012. Geller said it was too early to say whether the latest arson is linked to the others or whether Bundick was a suspect in the other arsons.
