Other customers at the vehicle wash intervened Sunday night after the woman revved her engine until the auto caught fire, according to KHOU-TV.

Authorities in Houston have taken a woman into custody after witnesses reported she set her auto on fire as she sat inside with her three children.

"Police told the station the mommy told the kids before setting the fire which ldquo;they certainly were planning to see Jesus".

She abandoned two of her daughters - ages 13 and 11 - and then continued to drag her 9-year-old daughter towards a bayou nearby, police said. Her children are now with relatives. According to deputies, she tripped and fell and ran briefly before the deputy constable took her into custody.
