Authorities say Jennifer Balisteri was trying to hurt herself when she set the fire this past Monday. She was on the roof of the apartment when police and firefighters arrived. A dog and three small animals were rescued unharmed from the unit, but there was extensive damage to the living room and smoke and heat damage to the rest of the apartment. No one was home in the downstairs apartment. Bond was set at $2,500 cash. A competency hearing is being scheduled.
