Florida police say 51-year-old Scott Anthony Massa was hospitalized
with injuries after burning himself while trying to set a home on
fire early Sunday morning. Police say Massa broke a window at a home
around 5:40 a.m. Then, according to the Tampa Police Department, he
tried to throw a bucket full of accelerant into the home. But it
ignited, exploded, and set him on fire. Police say the residence was
not set on fire and no occupants were injured. Canine units tried to
find Massa, but police say the trail was lost after he got into a
vehicle and drove away. After Massa’s description, including his
injuries, was broadcast to all officers, an officer working extra
duty at St. Joseph’s Hospital detained Massa when he showed up to
the facility with obvious injuries. Massa was taken to the Tampa
General Hospital burn unit and his vehicle was impounded. According
to TPD, arson investigators are taking the lead to determine
appropriate charges. (https://bit.ly/3oDGoBV)
