A brazen arsonist moved her belongings out of her flat before setting it ablaze in a bid to get rehoused.

The fire, which left neighbours in hospital after they breathed in toxic fumes, saw four families forced to be rehomed due to the damage.

Mina Daud’s flat fire caused £66,000 worth of damage and fire inspectors soon became suspicious of Daud, 23, as the fire had been started in several places.

When arrested she gave inconsistent accounts and was charged the day after the fire in September.

Yesterday, Daud was jailed for 22 months after pleading guilty to arson to recklessly endanger life at Harrow Crown Court.

DC Hussain Ahmed, of Barnet CID, said: ‘This fire was deliberately started in several locations in the defendant’s flat within a large four storey block where a number of residents were at home, including children.

‘At court it became clear this offence was motivated by Daud’s wish to be re-housed.’

He added: ‘The fire caused many of the residents to require medical treatment and temporary forced out of their homes.

‘However, it could have resulted in a much more catastrophic outcome. Thankfully this was not the case.’
