Investigators in the Bronx have charged a teenager with deliberately starting a fire that left several families homeless over the weekend.

Authorities say 19-year-old Princess Martinez set a mattress on fire on the sixth floor of her building in University Heights on Saturday.

They say she had just been in an argument with her mother.

Martinez is charged with second-degree arson.
