MIAMI -

Police say an arsonist set fire to a barn in northwest Miami-Dade County, killing three horses and a 47-year-old man who lived and worked on the property.

Police identified the victim as Sergio Fernandez.

About 1:12 a.m. Sunday, the owner of the barn called 911 after seeing flames. Firefighters were unable to extinguish the fire immediately because there were no fire hydrants nearby.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
