A Spokane woman in jail for first-degree arson says she lit her own apartment on fire because she was mad at her neighbors. Natalia Hensz, 23, told 4 News Now she doesn’t have any regrets, either. The fire broke out March 6 around 10 a.m. at the Cedar Terrace Apartments at 1405 West 8th Avenue on Spokane’s lower south hill. People and pets raced to evacuate the three story building. “Honestly, I grabbed my dog and then I grabbed all my weed and I just ran outside,” said tenant Braedan Truitt. “The fire department kicked open the door and then right as the door opened, smoke just came out everywhere.” Truitt and other tenants were surprised to hear the fire was no accident. “I lit it on fire,” Hensz told 4 News Now during a jailhouse interview. “I got pissed off at my neighbors.” Hensz wouldn’t say why she was so upset.
