HENRICO, Va. — The Henrico woman accused of arson has had her charge dropped.

County prosecutors told CBS 6 that cell phone information suggests Michelle Brisson may have been in Chesterfield when the fire started in March.
The fire at Hickory Creek Apartments in Henrico could be seen from miles away and it put 19 people out of their homes.

Brisson’s lawyer tells us the charges could be brought back at some point.

Brisson was arrested three weeks after the fire. She was denied bond too.

The apartment complex is in a high-density area, just off Mayland Drive behind the Tuckernuck Shopping Center — not far from J.R. Tucker High School. Smoke from the massive blaze was seen from miles away.
