Police attended and removed the woman and her daughter for their own safety.
At 3am the next morning Smith returned and set the unit alight , destroying its uninsured contents and causing more than $200,000 worth of damage.
Justice Tennent said his actions `were dangerous in the extreme''.
He will be eligible for parol in February 2015.
