Man accused of setting his Miami Springs house on fire | Miami Herald
A Miami Springs man was accused of arson on Tuesday shortly after his home caught fire.
William A. Deno, 24, was arrested after the blaze at his home, in the 600 block of Quail Avenue.
Minutes after the blaze that sent flames burning up into the roof, Deno “turned the gas on and lit the house on fire because there was no food in the house,” police said.
The home was not occupied at the time of the fire, police said. Family members were staying at a nearby hotel “because they were afraid” of Deno’s recent behavior, according to the police report.
