A babysitter who had been watching two girls in Austin, Texas for only a few months allegedly grew so frustrated with their shenanigans that she decided to light their house on fire. A punishment fit for the crime!

Martha Dreher, 57, was caught on surveillance camera entering the Texas home of the children she watched, leaving twenty minutes later with flames beginning to emerge from the girls' bedrooms. Dreher denies starting the fire.

Dreher told investigators that she was tired of dealing with the girls and wanted to quit. She had told their father that his oldest daughter was "very disrespectful."

According to ABC News and Glenn Williams, the girls' father, the family's oldest child came home and saw smoke:
