A Madison woman poured gasoline all over a bedridden housemate’s bedroom early Sunday morning, according to police.

The 49-year-old woman told police she was thinking of burning down the house on Blackbird Lane.

The 60-year-old man who is confined to his room is a smoker and the first officer on scene warned him not to use a match or lighter.

The man was removed from the home. The woman was taken for evaluation.
