HOUSTON, Texas -

(AP) - An 18-year-old has been arrested after being accused of starting a fire in his mother's Houston-area apartment because she would not give him money to buy marijuana.  

The Houston Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1cGu11G ) that John Carter is facing arson charges for setting his mother's clothes on fire on Saturday.   

Dean Hensley with the Harris County Fire Marshal's Office says damage to the apartment was limited to the clothing.    

Carter is jailed on a $30,000 bond.
