Daughter sets fire to New York, injuring 8 including mother

A spiteful daughter reportedly set her Brooklyn apartment ablaze during an argument with her mother on Tuesday night, starting a blaze that left the older woman with severe burns and seven others injured, officials said.

Anna Lambert, 34, has been arrested on second-degree arson charges for allegedly starting the inferno at the third-floor house she shares with her mother at 3303 13th Street Brighton in Coney Island, police said.

Lambert and the elderly woman got into an argument around 9pm – prompting the daughter to go into a bedroom, lock the door and “pouring an unknown substance on the door,” a police spokesman said.

The mother then saw smoke pouring out of the room, the spokesman said.

It took more than 100 FDNY smoke eaters to douse the blazes — and firefighters from Ladder 161 and Ladder 169 used a portable ladder to rescue the “panicked” mother from the third floor, an FDNY spokesman said.

Firefighters are trying to put out the fire that broke out on March 8, 2022 at a Brighton Beach apartment that was started after a disagreement between a mother and daughter.

According to the fire department, she suffered severe but non-life-threatening burns.

“A member climbed up and led them down,” the spokesman said. “There was no other way for her to get out of the apartment.”

Lambert has a prior arrest for a domestic incident involving her mother, a police source said.

The FDNY reported on the dramatic rescue on Instagram. “There was heavy smoke and fire pouring out of the windows of the apartment,” Ladder 161 firefighter Steven McGuire said in the Post. “One person from this apartment was standing by the window desperately screaming for help.”

Firefighters are taking the injured residents to a hospital once the flames are under control.

He and other FDNY members grabbed a 35-foot ladder and climbed to help the mother.

“I was able to climb up the ladder and reassure that person not to jump, we had to do this as quickly but safely as possible,” he said. “When we removed the person from the window, the fire engulfed the entire apartment. It was a team effort and if everyone hadn’t played their part, the result could have been a lot worse.”
