LONGWOOD, Fla. - Authorities say a Florida woman is in jail after she allegedly set fire to one of the world's oldest cypress trees while trying to use illegal drugs.
According to CBS affiliate WKMG, Sara Barnes,26, told authorities that she and a friend were inside the hollow tree on the early morning of Jan. 16 and lit a fire so they could see better.
Investigators say two witnesses identified Barnes as the person who caused a 118-foot-tall bald cypress tree named "The Senator" to burn and collapse. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Barnes reportedly took photos of the fire with her cellphone.
The Seminole County parks department says ring samples showed the tree, located in Big Tree Park in Longwood, was roughly 3,500 years old.
