A Florida woman has been arrested for setting fire to a car she mistakenly thought belonged to her ex-boyfriend (video below).

Carmen Chamblee, 19, has been charged with second-degree arson after setting fire to a Honda Accord in Clearwater. 

Police believe Chamblee thought the car belonged to her ex-boyfriend, but was mistaken. The owner of the car, Thomas Jennings, said he has never seen the woman in his life.

A security camera recording shows Chamblee setting the car ablaze.

Investigators found a rag that was placed in the car's gas tank and set alight, according to the Daily Mail.

Jennings says his roommate alerted him that his car was on fire. When he and his roommate ran outside to try to extinguish the flames, Jennings said it was "too much" and they were unable to put the fire out.

Chamblee was taken to the Pinellas County Jail. She is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 11.
