A Florida man almost set himself on fire when he attempted to torch his home, a report said.
Scott Anthony Massa, 51, supposedly took a pail of quickening agent and endeavored to burn his Tampa Bay home at about 5:40 a.m. Sunday, police revealed to Fox 13.
However, while attempting to throw the basin through a wrecked window, Massa burst into flames.
He fled the scene.
Massa was later captured at St. Joseph’s Hospital where he had been looking for treatment for his consumables.
As of Sunday night, he remained hospitalized.
Charges against him were forthcoming. It was not satisfactory why the man needed to set his own home ablaze.
