Insane moment woman sets deadly house blaze in Milwaukee

Insane moment woman sets deadly house blaze in Milwaukee”

Police arrested a 39-year-old woman Sunday on suspicion of setting a house fire that killed a 72-year-old man after video shot by witnesses appeared to show her throwing gas into a home in Milwaukee and setting it ablaze.

Police went to the scene around 7:45 p.m. Friday, WITI reports.

Moments later, firefighters arrived as huge flames engulfed the home. You can see a woman smash a window, pour gas inside the home and start the house on fire.

Jestopher and Jessie Hinds and their cousin Travonta Richmond say they watched nearby as the woman busted out a window before grabbing what appears to be a gas can from the garage and pouring it through a window.

It took several crews to extinguish the fire, and one firefighter was injured.

Another woman inside the home at the time can then be seen jumping from a ground-floor window.

Milwaukee police say Willie Greer died in the fire on June 16, which they are investigating as a homicide and arson.

Family members of the suspect - who has not been identified or caught - say she started the fire after a row with her boyfriend, who lived at the home but was not inside.

Bystanders said they attempted to help those trapped in the house but were pushed back by heavy smoke.

Family members of the unnamed suspect said they had urged her to hand herself in.

In a statement, police said charges will be recommended to the Milwaukee County DA's office in the coming days.

"I just hope that person be brought to justice because it wasn't right", said Robert Neylon, who lives across the street from the fire.
