A MOTHER allegedly caught fire on Monday after her kid allegedly doused her in gasoline.

Joanna Parker, 72, was discovered on fire on her porch by authorities in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, at 10:30 a.m.

First responders sprang into action to extinguish the fire that was devouring her body.

She was sent to a nearby hospital, where she passed away later.

The Winston-Salem Police Department told The U.S. Sun that the inquiry “found that James Parker was furious with his mother, Joanna Parker, so he poured gasoline on her and set her afire.”

After being accused of her murder, her 48-year-old son is being held without bond at the Forsyth County Detention Center.

Adora Gonzalez, Joanna’s great niece, lives across the street from the family and saw everything from her kitchen window.

“I heard my aunt screaming ‘put it out’ in pain, and her whole porch was engulfed in flames.”

Police blocked off the home with crime scene tape for hours as they collected evidence.

On the front porch, there was evident charring and melting debris in the video from the incident.

A red gasoline can was lying in the front yard, and a forensics team was seen at the house.

The wheelchair-bound woman had third- and fourth-degree burns, according to Joanna’s relatives, before she passed away.

“That’s one of the worst ways to go,” said Gonzalez.

“You must really not like somebody to have to do that to them.”

She added that Joanna and her son did not have the best relationship, however, she never expected something like this to happen.

“His mom would yell at him a lot, and he wouldn’t do anything back,” she said.

“He wouldn’t really say anything back.

“I just didn’t know it would end up like this.”

James Parker was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
