A woman in Jerusalem was arrested Wednesday after allegedly setting fire to a gas pump at a filling station, authorities said.

Surveillance video obtained by Israeli police shows the woman talking to a man as he put gas into his car.

She starts to walk away and then turns around and approaches the man again, the video showed.

"A woman approached a man while filling his petrol tank and asked for a cigarette, when he refused to give it to her she pulled out a lighter from her pocket and ignited the petrol pump," police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said in a written statement reported by The Telegraph.

No one was injured in the incident, the newspaper reported.
