Firefighters say a teen was arrested for throwing a Molotov cocktail at a Tulsa home Tuesday morning, catching the front door on fire.

A neighbor told police she saw Cherry put gasoline on the house and throwing something through a window while the other girls were inside.

May said investigators arrested Cherry and she was booked into the Tulsa County jail on a first-degree arson complaint.

Jail records Jerica Cherry is being held on a $20,000 bond with an August 9 court appearance set.
