A local woman claims a teenager tried to start a fire outside her home.
NBC 10 visited the apartment building on Plainfield Street in Providence Wednesday night and spoke with 27-year-old Britney Bartis.
She did not want to talk on camera, but she told police she was watching the security system on her TV early Wednesday morning as part of a special neighborhood watch and that's when she spotted the 16-year-old from Woonsocket.
She says he was hiding under a parked car with lighters and a can of lighter fluid that he had already poured on the home.
Bartis says she has the video, but she was afraid to share it with NBC 10 for fear of retaliation.
The accused teenager is at the training school.
A hearing is set for Monday.
23 Kenney Drive
