A woman has been arrested after two young children were left in a car that caught fire while she was allegedly shoplifting in Oviedo, Florida, on May 26.

Twenty-four-year-old Alicia Moore parked outside the Oviedo Mall’s Dillard’s store, leaving the children “who could not care for themselves” seated inside, according to law enforcement, Fox 35 reported Friday.

The woman entered the building accompanied by an unidentified man and allegedly shoplifted several items.


However, when the woman neared the exit she noticed her car was on fire. Video footage shows the white car with flames coming out of its back windows.

Authorities said the suspect dropped the items she was allegedly carrying and ran out of the building. Citizens who saw what was happening rushed over and helped save the two children.


Fox 35 shared the 911 calls Friday regarding the incident, noting that when the woman accompanied the children to the hospital, law enforcement learned she had warrants for additional alleged crimes:
