In a jealous rage, a Texas lady sets fire to her boyfriend’s home.

According to authorities, a Texas lady allegedly set fire to her boyfriend’s family house and FaceTimed him to show off the blaze after suspecting him of cheating on her.

Senaida Marie Soto, 23, is accused of breaking into the San Antonio house shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday to seek revenge on her boyfriend, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said.

“Soto had FaceTimed her boyfriend, when another woman answered his phone, who later turned out to be a relative of the boyfriend,” police said.

In a rage, Soto allegedly set fire to a couch in the living room which quickly engulfed the entire home.

The jealous woman then FaceTimed her boyfriend to show a chair up in flames, an affidavit obtained by KSAT states.

“I hope your stuff is going to be ok,” Soto reportedly said before ending the call.

Soto also allegedly texted her boyfriend, “I hope your house is okay” before driving off.
