NJ teen accused of torching family's home is held

Posted: Updated:

WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey teenager charged with attempted murder and arson for allegedly setting a fire at her family's house remains held pending another court hearing.

The 15-year-old was due in family court in Gloucester County on Monday. However, that's been postponed after her detention hearing took place over the weekend. Her name is being withheld because she is a juvenile.

Authorities say the Saturday morning fire was set with gasoline. Most of the damage was contained to the second floor of the single-family house.

The teen and six other family members were injured, including two who were taken to a burn center in Pennsylvania with internal burns.

The suspect is being held at the Camden County Juvenile Detention Center.
