Temple Terrace, Florida - Tampa Police have arrested a man for arson after a fire broke out at an apartment complex near Tampa.
Firefighters evacuated 28 apartments on Sunday night, but were able to contain the fire to a single apartment at Mar Plaza in Temple Terrace. The complex is an elderly affordable living facility. No injuries were reported.
The upstairs unit where the fire began sustained heavy fire, smoke and water damage.
During the investigation, police say 58-year-old Kenneth Haskins, who lives at the facility, made remarks that he had been upset with the property's management company.
Based on his statements, as well as evidence collected at the scene, police arrested Haskins and charged him with one count of arson.
Investigators tell 10 News Haskins wanted to get back at management after he was told to stop masturbating in front of his open windows and front door.
The assisted living facility is occupied by seniors and disabled people. Tampa Police say Haskins suffers from severe facial injuries that were a result of a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the face several years earlier.
Four families were displaced by the fire and residents of the remaining units were allowed to return home Sunday night.
The American Red Cross is assisting those displaced by the fire.
