LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. -- A teen was arrested Thursday night after allegedly setting a fire at her home.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said the 15-year-old girl was upset with her parents.

Deputies responded to the home near Litchfield and Bethany Home roads before the fire for a report of criminal damage.

While deputies were speaking with the homeowners, the teen allegedly set fire to a notebook and placed it under her bed. After seeing the fire spread, she alerted the deputies.

She has been charged with arson of an occupied structure and seven counts of endangerment.
