MIAMI SPRINGS, Fla. – A man had been harassing a woman before yet another fire on Wednesday in an industrial complex in Miami-Dade County, said a resident who did not want to be identified.
Miami-Dade firefighters extinguished the flames at a warehouse building at 2121 NW 139 St., in Opa-locka.
A firefighter said the fire damaged a small area of the roof. A police officer described the arsonist as an ex-boyfriend of the property owner.
The man who police officers suspected of setting the fire barricaded himself inside a home in Miami-Dade before police officers arrested him.
A resident said the same man was probably the arsonist who recently damaged a pickup truck.
