Kansas camper charged with 3 counts of arson in Santa Cruz county

SANTA CRUZ — The Kansas woman charged with three felony counts of arson related to recent Boulder Creek vegetation fires pleaded not guilty Tuesday.

Mary Ferino, 34, was ordered held without bail at Santa Cruz County Jail and is scheduled for a preliminary court hearing May 3, pending confirmation.

Assistant District Attorney Charlie Baum, in arguing against the lowering of Ferino’s bail, said a helicopter had been called in to make a water drop on one of the fires Ferino is charged with igniting. Ferino’s bail initially was set at $5,000, before an increase was requested.
