BROOKLYN - A female New York City corrections officer has been arrested for arson after a two-alarm fire in Bed-Stuy that injured several people.
According to fire officials, 43-year-old Yvette Randolph is accused of setting the blaze Thursday morning that sent flames through an apartment building at 375 Chauncey St.
News 12 obtained surveillance video from a bodega near the fire that may have caught the suspect in the act. It shows a woman dressed in what appears to be a uniform going into the building for about three minutes. She then walks out toward Howard Avenue and within minutes, smoke is seen billowing out of the brownstone.
