A woman became enraged when she found her husband in bed with another woman.
The 26-year-old is behind bars after she poured paraffin on her rented apartment and set it on fire.
The woman’s actions left her landlord and two tenant homeless. All their belongings were destroyed in the fire.
The woman and her husband rented one of the four cottages in a courtyard in Mangaung, South Africa.
The woman’s husband saw her pouring paraffin on the house so he grabbed some of his important papers.
He and the mistress escaped unharmed, but he and his angry wife lost all of their belongings in the fire.
“The 26-year-old was arrested on Sunday, and she was charged with arson,” police spokesperson Maselela Langa said.
