VERNAL, Utah, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- A Utah woman was ordered to stand trial on arson charges after she allegedly used bacon to ignite a house fire in her ex-boyfriend's home.

Cameo Adawn Crispi's ex-boyfriend was away from his home in March when he received a barrage of calls and text messages from his embittered ex. Crispi told her former lover that she was in his home, prompting him to call police.

Police arrived to smoke coming from house's front door.

"I asked to come in and observed a wood stove left open with a fire burning inside and hot coals on the floor around the stove," the responding officer wrote, adding a pound of bacon was found sizzling on the kitchen stove.

"I observed the burner to be on the setting 'High' and the bacon to be severely burned and smoking badly."

Crispi was arrested, and following medical clearance, taken to jail. The 32-year-old's blood alcohol content was 0.346, over four times Utah's legal limit. She is charged with arson, burglary, assault by a prisoner, interfering with an arresting officer, electronic communication harassment and intoxication.
