OKLAHOMA CITY – A teenager is behind bars after fire investigators say she admitted to setting her boyfriend’s house on fire.

The young man and his mother were inside the home at the time.

Luckily, the fire did not get out of control.

However, fire officials say they work about 500 arsons a year and many are started after arguments between family members or significant others.

Chief Randy Williams, with the Oklahoma City Fire Department, said, “Unfortunately, some people think that’s a way to get rid of their frustration and they need to find a better avenue for that.”

As for the young woman who was arrested, she is 17-years-old but we’re told she will be charged as an adult.
