A woman set fire to the New Jersey home where her boyfriend lives several hours after they had consensual sex there with another woman, authorities say. 

Police say Tasia Young told them she had been "going through a lot" and was angry her boyfriend had her take a cab home after the encounter while the other woman remained at the residence in Woodbury. 

No injuries were reported in Sunday night's fire. But Young's boyfriend and six other people who live in apartments at the home were displaced by the blaze.

Authorities say the 33-year-old Woodbury woman came to police headquarters Tuesday and confessed to setting the fire. 

Young is charged with arson, aggravated assault, criminal mischief and multiple counts of endangerment. It's not known if she's retained an attorney.
