A spiteful daughter allegedly torched her Brooklyn apartment Tuesday night amid a fight with her mother — sparking a blaze that left the older woman and seven others injured, officials said.

Anna Lambert, 34, was arrested on second-degree arson charges for allegedly starting the inferno in the third-floor home she shares with her mom at 3303 Brighton 13th Street in Coney Island, police said.

Lambert and the older woman got into a spat around 9 p.m. — prompting the daughter to go into a bedroom, lock the door and pour “an unknown substance on the door,” a police spokesman said.

The mother then saw smoke pouring from the room, the spokesman said.

It took more than 100 FDNY smoke eaters to put out the flames — and firefighters from Ladder 161 and Ladder 169 used a portable ladder to rescue the “panicked” mom from the third floor, an FDNY spokesman said.

Fire units attempt to put out the blaze that was started on March 8, 2022 in a Brighton Beach apartment that was set after a disagreement between mother and daughter.

She suffered serious but not life-threatening burns, according to fire officials.

“One member climbed up and guided her down,” the spokesman said. “There was no other way for her to get out of the apartment.”

Five other residents and two firefighters were injured in the blaze at the 25-unit building, including a child, who was seriously hurt. The fire was extinguished by 10:30 p.m.
