Israel Police arrested a young woman who caused a fire in a Jerusalem gas station after a driver refused to give her a cigarette.

The woman was at the Paz Gas station on Derech Bethlehem in Jerusalem on Tuesday. A security camera depicts her approaching a man filling his car's gas tank.

She allegedly asked him for a cigarette, and he said no. Then she pulled a lighter out of her pocket and lit the handle of the fuel pump, which immediately caught fire.
Gas station workers put out the fire.

The suspect was arrested soon after the event by local police but denied the accusations while under investigation.
