Model Sara Barnes 3,500-year-old Tree, A woman accidentally burned down one of the world’s oldest trees because she needed a light to see the party drugs she was taking, US police say.

Sara Barnes, 26, was allegedly using crystal meth inside a hollow 3500-year-old cypress tree in Florida’s Big Tree Park, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Police said Barnes took photos of the burning 35m tree, a national landmark commonly known as “The Senator”, but did not call firefighters when she set the tree alight about 5.30am on January 16.

“I can’t believe I burned down a tree older than Jesus,” she allegedly told friends later.

Seminole County Sheriff’s officers allegedly found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia at Barnes’ home, and confiscated her mobile phone and laptop.

The giant tree burned to the ground despite firefighters’ efforts to save it.
