A young woman set fire to her father's home after she became enraged by the lack of food in the house, a UK court has heard.
On April 28, Farha Bushra, 20, called her father and threatened to set the house on fire if he did not go grocery shopping, according to reports.
When Bushra's dad told her to purchase her own food, she followed through with her threat and set alight tissues in a cardboard box in his bedroom.
The Cambridge Crown Court heard on Thursday (local time) that Bushra called her father back a few minutes later when the blaze quickly burned out of control.
The fire had already spread throughout the property, located in Cambridgeshire in eastern England, before firefighters arrived to tackle the blaze, according to local media.
Bushra, who police branded as "hangry" - a combination of 'hungry' and 'angry' - later admitted to arson.
PC Antony Piccinelli said her behaviour was "completely inexplicable".
"Only she will know why she thought setting fire to her father's bedroom was a good idea or an acceptable reaction to an argument over food shopping," he said, as reported by local media.
The 20-year-old was not sentenced to jail time but has been given an 18-month community order, fined £1000 (NZ$1921) and ordered to complete 40 days of rehabilitation.
