Police Friday released the name of a woman arrested after she led police on a car chase that ended in a wreck that started a house fire. A child in the car was not in a car seat, police said.

Jimi Harvey, 24, was arrested on complaints of eluding police, child endangerment and speeding in a school zone. According to a police report, an officer tried to stop Harvey's car Thursday after it sped through a school zone.

Instead of stopping, the car sped up, leading police on a brief chase that ended when it crashed into a house at 1504 SW 61. The crash started a house fire that was put out by firefighters. Fire officials said the blaze caused $35,000 in damage to the house.

Harvey was taken to the Oklahoma County jail.
