An woman allegedly started a fire in an East Harlem apartment early this morning, leaving a 23-year-old man critically injured; officials say she caused the fire after becoming enraged about a missing cell phone.

The unnamed alleged arsonist was reportedly staying in the injured man's eighth floor apartment at the DeWitt Clinton Houses on East 109th street. The fire started at around 1 a.m., and officials believe the woman lit a pile of clothes on the floor on fire after arguing with the man over her missing phone. Though firefighters put out the flames within 45 minutes, the 23-year-old man suffered severe burns and smoke inhalation and was transported to New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center's burn unit; a 28-year-old man, a 20-year-old woman and a 1-year-old girl were also injured and treated at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Police arrested the suspect shortly after the FDNY arrived. "The girl in cuffs was saying, ‘Sorry’ in Spanish. ... One of the women said, 'That stupid b---- set my house on fire.’... She started going crazy, trying to charge. Cops had to restrain her. They said, ‘Calm down, or we'll put you in cuffs too,’" Tiffany Lawson, who lives at the complex, told the Daily News.
