MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Police are accusing a New Hampshire woman of killing her roommates' pet ferret, which was found dead in a smoke-filled oven.

Manchester police say they got a call around 2:40 a.m. Wednesday about smoke in an apartment building caused by a burned item in an oven.

Firefighters cleared the building and found the ferret.

Two people who rented the apartment said they owned the ferret. They told police that they had a temporary guest.

Police arrested 26-year-old Ivana Clifford on one count of animal cruelty.

She was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon.

It wasn't immediately known if she had a lawyer. A phone number couldn't be found for her.
