A pet store owner in Las Vegas, Nev., is accused of intentionally setting fire to her business while dozens of dogs were still inside, reported Monday's News 3.

Fire investigators arrested 35-year-old Gloria Lee for allegedly setting fire to the Prince and Princess Puppy Boutique early last week.

Thanks to the prompt response from fire officials and a sprinkler system, all 28 dogs, who were inside of the pet store at the time that the blaze erupted, were rescued.

Clark County spokesman John Steinbeck told the Las Vegas Sun:

Lee is facing felony charges of arson and conspiracy to commit arson; on Monday morning, she was scheduled for arraignment.
