Well that escalated quickly!
A 37-year-old landlord in Minnesota named Travis Carlson deliberately set his apartment on fire last Thursday while blasting the 33-year-old Billy Joel song "We Didn't Start the Fire," according to CBS News. Travis drilled holes in his truck's gas tank, put the gas into cans, and then carried them back and forth, up to his apartment. His downstairs tenant heard him "smashing glass and breaking things" for about 20 minutes. Then, he knocked on that tenant's door, and told them that "the house is on fire."
When firefighters arrived, they found the apartment on fire with "We Didn't Start the Fire" blaring from the unit. Travis could face up to 20 years in prison. It's unclear WHY he did it. Or if he tried to argue that "it was always burning since the world's been turning."
