Satterly is charged with 14 counts of first-degree arson and three counts of aggravated animal cruelty.
Neighbors told WSBTV that they ran out of their homes with almost nothing but their lives.
“I lost my two dogs, which is the hardest thing because material things can be replaced, but my dogs is my -- that breaks my heart,” neighbor Auzalea Godfrey said.
Fire investigators said Satterly called 911 after walking about an hour to a nearby Walmart after starting the fire.
Satterly remained jailed Tuesday in Paulding County, where she is being held without bond.
Neighbors said she gave them no warning.
