Updated 7 years ago

A judge has ruled that 44-year-old Rachel Childs was insane when she set the fire, and is not criminally responsible.

According to prosecutors, Childs set fire to some materials in her closet.

She had to jump from a window to escape the flames of the fire that left seven people homeless.

Childs would have faced up to 30 years in prison, had she been convicted.
