A neighbor said that a resident named Kenneth Haskins admitted to setting the fire at the apartment. Haskins lives in the apartment where the fire started. He told police that he wanted to get revenge on the company that manages the complex.

Haskins said his reason for revenge was that he was told by the complex managers he could not masturbate in front of open windows and doors. Haskins was held without bail at the Orient Road Jail.



Some 28 apartments were evacuated by firefighters and police officers during the incident. There were no reports of injuries to residents or emergency personnel. Fire and smoke damage was apparent in just Haskins’ apartment and the one next to his. Two apartments sustained water damage on the first floor.

Haskins has lived at the complex for more than 10 years. He has a face disfigurement that occurred because he shot himself in the face with a shotgun. State records show that Haskins does not have a criminal history in the state of Florida.
