According to the police, a woman torched the home she lost in a divorce and ended up burning 19 neighbors’ homes on the same street.
41-year-old, Adrienne Satterly, allegedly piled matresses on the floor of her old marital home in Atlanta, Ga, before setting them alight.
While setting the blaze when it was dark in the early hours of Sunday, it spread to neighboring homes, forcing residents to flee.
In the dramatic video footage, it can be seen a row of homes completely consumed by flames, with four houses totally destroyed by fire.
It caused an estimated $1million of damage to those properties and 16 others, with two dogs and a cat killed in the inferno.

Another neighbor called Shemiah Hedgebeth told WSB-TV: ‘It’s just senseless and it’s sad. And it’s hateful, just hateful.’
