A woman has been charged, accused of deliberately lighting a housefire in Gunnedah nearly two months ago.
About 10.20pm on November 20, emergency services were called to Ross Road near Quia Road after reports a home was on fire.
Fire crews including the NSW Rural Fire Service arrived to find the home had been engulfed by flames.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze, which took several hours to contain.
All that remained after was the charred shell of the weather-board home, which was cordoned off as a crime scene.
Oxley police launched an investigation and said the blaze was suspicious.
After extensive inquiries, officers moved on Tuesday morning and arrested a 46-year-old woman at a home on Bloomfield Street at about 7.40am.
The woman was taken to Gunnedah Police Station and charged with damaging property by fire that's worth more than $15,000.
The 46-year-old was granted conditional bail by police to appear at Gunnedah Local Court this month.
