Woman arrested for recklessly lighting a tractor on fire in Marion

MARION (KWWL) -

A North Liberty woman is accused of recklessly using her cigarette lighter and causing a fire that destroyed a tractor in Marion.

Erika Visger, 31, is charged with reckless use of fire.

Authorities say Visger and some friends were at a bar before going to a friend's house around midnight Monday. A resident warned Visger not to use her cigarette lighter because she was near a puddle of gas that was leaking from an old tractor. Authorities say she used it and a spark ignited the gas, destroying the tractor.
