Several people were inside the motel at the time, including Buckley's ex. 

Investigators say Buckley had previously attempted to set fire to the same building outside her ex's room and had placed a gas-soaked rag inside the exhaust pipe of her ex's car. 

Deputies say she was seeking revenge after the breakup.

Buckley was arrested on Thursday. She is being held in the Ontario County Jail on $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 insurance bond.
