    Police in the Vermont community of Morristown say two women have been charged with attempted murder for allegedly setting fire to a house occupied by a family.

    Thirty-five-year-old Leola Bell and 40-year-old Tina Cole pleaded not guilty on Friday to attempted first-degree murder and first-degree arson charges.

    Police say no one was injured, but the residence was damaged.

    Two other people are facing arson charges in the case. Police say 57-year-old Cynthia Bell and 49-year-old Gwen Hislop of Morristown will be arraigned on charges of accessory to arson for their roles in the fire at 80 George St.

    More charges are expected.

    Cole and Bell are being held on $100,000 bail.
