Florence police are looking for Treaver Denise Johnson, 40, on a Third Degree Arson charge and nine counts of Attempted Murder in a fire that damaged a Florence apartment.

Police say she got into an argument with her boyfriend right after midnight, and he asked her to leave the house on Warley Road.

The house is divided into two apartments.

She started banging on the door and screaming and then, set fire to a couch on the front porch, police say.

She then kicked out a window, which police say caused the fire to spread more quickly.

Nine people inside the home managed to get out, including an older woman who had to crawl through a window.

If you have any information on where Johnson may be, you're asked to call Florence police at (843) 665-3191.
