A Mansfield woman has been charged with aggravated arson in connection with a weekend fire at 511 S. Main St. that seriously injured her husband.

A $250,000 bond has been set for Olivia Smith Jones who is currently in the Richland County Jail.

Regman Jones, 62, was rescued by firefighters Saturday evening.

Fire officials say they received a report around 11:40 p.m. of a two-story home on fire at 511 S. Main St.  Upon arrival, flames could be seen shooting out of second floor windows and from the attic area.

Firefighters entered the home, found Jones inside and administered CPR before transporting him to MedCentral Mansfield Hospital. Jones was later transferred to a Columbus area hospital.
