Woman Lights House On Fire, With Someone In It, Grabs Lawn Chair And Watches The Show: Police

Woman Lights House On Fire With Someone In It Watches From Lawn Chair


Just when we think we have seen just about everything there is to see on the internet we get this woman in Elkton, Maryland who (allegedly) lit her house on fire, with someone in it, grabbed a lawn chair and a book and enjoyed the show. Then she got arrested.

Meet Gail J. Metwally, 47, who is charged with setting multiple fires within the home – where she lives, err, lived.

According to Fox 45 News, witnesses reported observing a woman (Metwally) setting the fires then relaxing in a lawn chair in the front year with a book as the house was engulfed in flames.

That’s right. She lit the fire (allegedly) and then went full…

A few minutes later Metwally walked away from the fire and witnesses heard screaming coming from a basement window. Bystanders, hearing the yelling, helped a woman in the basement out of a window to safety.

Cecil County Sheriff’s Office noticed Metwally in the area as they responded to the scene, detained her, then took her to the Maryland State Police North East Barrack.

She didn’t appear to be too upset.

Deputy State Fire Marshals concluded the fire was incendiary in nature. It was arson. That means it was arson.

Four people reportedly lived in the home, but two were away when the fires were set.

Metwally was captured on video, chilling in her lawn chair in the front yard, by Twitter user @davenewworld_2.

“She just lit the f—ing trashcan on fire and dumped it in the f—ing living room,” says someone in the video.

“I cannot actually believe my eyes. I cannot actually believe it. And she’s sitting there, just chillin’, watching the house go up in flames. Oh my God.”


Of course, numerous people complained about the people who shot the video.

However, for anyone looking to ruin these guys…

All that being said…

So, does this mean Maryland the new Ohio? (Ohio is like the WTF minor league champions. Maryland still has a loooong way to go to become the new Florida.)

Metwally was charged with first-degree arson, first-degree assault, second-degree attempted murder, two counts of malicious burning first degree, two counts of malicious destruction of property, and two counts of reckless endangerment.
