A woman has been arrested on charges of attempted murder and arson in connection with the June 23 apartment fire at the Copper Terrace complex in Centennial.

Naomi Almodovar, 23, was taken into custody without incident July 18 by Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office investigators, with assistance from the Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force Fugitive Unit and the Aurora Police Department. She also was charged with domestic violence, and additional charges are pending, according to a news release issued by the sheriff's office.

Almodovar is being held at the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office Detention Facility on a no-bond hold.

At 1:09 a.m. June 23, South Metro Fire Rescue was dispatched to 6550 S Dayton St. on a fire that eventually claimed eight of the 24 units in building G, and an additional 10 units were damaged from smoke and water. Only six units in the building did not sustain damages.

No lives were lost in the fire, but one person was seriously injured. According to the American Red Cross Disaster Action Team, 14 people and two pets were displaced. A total of 45 people lived in the evacuated building.
