NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Police said a teenager tried to burn down his family's Antioch home after an argument with his mother Saturday. 

Firefighters saved the home, located on Robert Yoest Drive, but the son, Martez D. Horton, 18, is facing charges.

Horton is accused of dousing the home with gasoline after his mom told him to turn down the music while she was trying to sleep.

The suspect's entire family was home during the incident. 

The back door was completely destroyed, but firefighters stopped it from spreading to the rest of the home.

Horton is charged with aggravated arson and reckless endangerment.
