A Clayton, N.J. teen who allegedly set her family’s home on fire with gasoline has seen her family court hearing scheduled for today postponed to Monday.
The 15-year-old girl, whose name has been withheld since she is a juvenile, will face attempted murder charges for a fire that took place Saturday morning.
Investigators believe the girl started the fire with gasoline on the second floor, according to the Gloucester County Times. Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, and the damage was contained to that floor of the home.
According to an Associated Press report on delawareonline.com, the Gloucester County prosecutor's office said the teen suffered burns to the bottoms of her feet and another juvenile girl injured her hip jumping from the second floor of the home to escape.
A woman and another relative suffered internal burns, and were transported to Crozier Burn Center in Upland, Pennsylvania. The Courier Post reported that the woman's husband and a 9-year-old received burns to their feet and legs in the fire and were treated at Cooper University Hospital, according to the prosecutors.
Prosecutors also said a 6-year-old boy inside the house at the time was not injured.
New York Daily News reports that the girl is being held at Camden County Juvenile Detention Center. She is being charged with six counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated arson in the incident.
