The woman's daughters, ages 9, 11 and 13 have been placed with family members, according to officials.

One witness said she heard the lady tell the three children, "We're going to see Jesus".

A witness saw a woman, later identified as Ana Segovia, 31, rev her engine until her vehicle caught fire in a Houston, Texas, auto wash parking lot Sunday evening.

Once officials started to approach the woman, she fled on foot with her children tow.




Police told the station the mother told the kids before setting the fire that "they were going to see Jesus". She was eventually captured and taken into custody by Harris County Pct.

Precinct 7 officers found Segovia trying to drag her 9-year-old toward a bayou, investigators said.

The youngsters were unharmed from the incident and police are discovering what rates to document.

The Houston Fire Department arson unit is conducting an investigation on West Orem Drive near Quention Drive in southwest Houston. A mental health evaluation is pending.
