WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a woman set fire to her boyfriend's home several hours after they had a consensual sexual encounter there with another woman.

Police in Woodbury, New Jersey, say Tasia Young told them she had been "going through a lot" and was angry her boyfriend had her take a cab home after the encounter while the other woman remained at the home.

No injuries were reported in Sunday night's fire. But Young's boyfriend and six other people who live in nearby apartments were displaced.

Authorities say the 33-year-old Woodbury woman came to police headquarters Tuesday and confessed to setting the fire.

Young is charged with arson, aggravated assault, criminal mischief and endangerment. Police didn't know if she attorney to speak for her, and a phone listing couldn't be found.
