This feels like some textbook instant karma right here.  There’s a 51-year-old guy named Scott Massa in Tampa, Florida.  And early on Sunday morning, he tried to set a house on fire.  He broke a window and tried to throw a bucket of accelerant inside.  But it ignited and exploded, and he wound up setting HIMSELF on fire.  The fire didn’t spread to the house . . . and Scott went to the hospital with serious burns.

The police found him there and he’ll be facing arson charges.  He’s still hospitalized right now.

There was no one inside the house at the time, and there’s no word on why he was targeting it.
