ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. – Burlington police have arrested a woman in connection to a house fire and a body found in a container.

Angela Bookout Frazier, 43, has been charged with one count each of burning one’s own dwelling and concealment of a death.

The fire was reported at 1039 Washington St. in Burlington around noon Friday. Officers responded to investigate a suspected arson.

Police said they obtained information that two women possibly lived at the home, but neither one was there.

The police and fire personnel cleared the scene of the house fire at around 5:20 p.m. Friday, according to Burlington police.

On the same day, police said a highway maintenance worker found a storage container near the intersection of Bellemont-Mount Hermon Road and Southern High School Road, about seven-and-a-half miles from the house fire. A woman’s body was inside.

Burlington police said they have identified the victim, but the name is being withheld to notify the family.

Officers said there were no visible signs of blunt force trauma or other wounds. The body was taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Chapel Hill for an autopsy.

Police have not said whether the house fire is connected to the body found in the container, but said there is a possible link.

The woman found in the container reportedly bears resemblance to a Frazier’s roommate who lived at the house that caught fire, police said.

Police said Frazier was taken to the Alamance County Sheriff’s Department in lieu of a $50,000 secured bond.

She was arrested after being found and questioned by investigators, according to police.
