Florida Man Sets House on Fire to Keep Warm

There's a lot of flawed logic happening here.

A man in St. Petersburg, Florida was arrested Tuesday morning (January 21st) for setting a fire inside his apartment to stay warm.

Sixty-six-year-old Mark Okrent allegedly set fire to a stack of paperwork in his apartment around 3 a.m., and police report the flames were large enough to set off smoke detectors.

No one was injured, but Okrent has been charged with arson in the first degree.

Police also say he had several other options available to him that could've helped him get warm.


Please note that this particular specimen of Florida Man is of the Central Florida subspecies. Members of the Northern/Panhandle subspecies know what heaters are.
