Hell hath no fury like an apartment scorched.

Whitney Holmes, now charged with aggravated arson and domestic battery, found a great way to get even with her (ex?) boyfriend after an argument — she set his couch on fire and eventually almost burned down his whole building.

Dozens of residents were forced to evacuate the Chicago South Shore apartment building, and the scene eventually drew more than 80 firefighters and EMS responders. The blaze took over an hour to contain and six people (including a child) were hospitalized with injuries, but the woman's 24-year-old boyfriend will probably remember to do the damn dishes now.
