Police say a teenager set her boyfriend's apartment on fire in Newburgh last night.
According to authorities, 18-year-old Natasha Porter set fire to 26-year-old Brian Jones' clothes in the bathtub of his third-floor apartment at 110 Liberty St. after an argument.
Officials say Porter admitted to a fireman that she started the fire, but Jones claims to know nothing about what happened. He says they weren't even having a fight.
Fire officials say the building is completely destroyed, leaving all of the residents to try to find a new place to live.
Porter is facing felony arson charges and is being held at the Orange County jail on $2,500 bail. She is due back in court on Monday.
