HARROGATE — A Lincoln Memorial University student has been arrested on charges including aggravated arson after she allegedly set fire to a college dormitory over the weekend.

Alicia King, 19, of Denton, Tenn., also was charged with underage consumption after authorities say she started the blaze on an elevator inside Grant Lee Hall, said Claiborne County Sheriff David Ray.

No one was injured, Ray said, but the dorm sustained heavy smoke and fire damage.
