She’s a fiery one.

A New Jersey woman allegedly set a man’s house ablaze after he invited her over for sex then stood her up, according to NJ.com.

Taija M. Russell, 29, of Blackwood, N.J. was charged on Tuesday with attempted murder and aggravated arson for starting the Aug. 4 inferno, which left the Woodbury man with first-and second-degree burns.

The man — who told police Russell was his “side chick” — had received eight missed calls from the scorned woman and a slew of text messages, including, “You wasted my money to come out here,” “U smoked,” “I see you wanna die,” and “I swear to god I hope you die,” police said.

Security camera footage showed Russell buying matches, a lighter and lighter fluid from an area gas station, cops said. Video from another camera shows the woman knocking on the door of the man’s house with the items in tow at around 4 a.m.



The man awoke to the flames at around 4:30 a.m. and bolted from the burning home wearing only a T-shirt, officials said.

He told Russell to come to his house for sex, but fell asleep before she showed up.

The man, whose dog was also rescued from the flames, was also treated for smoke inhalation.
