A 16-year-old girl allegedly attempted to burn her mother’s house down July 2. The arson attempt occurred while her sister and mother were home, according to the Macon Police Department.
Police said the girl poured gasoline on the house and made threatening comments. The teen said she didn’t burn the house because she couldn’t find anything to light it, according to police reports.
The girl was taken to a youth detention center, the police report stated.
