An ex-employee that was fired from a horse training centre has admitted to local authorities that he started two fires at the facility because he was angry that he was let go.

According to an article by the Palm Beach Post, Guillermo Rodriguez Torres has said that he set two fires at Palm Beach Downs, an equestrian centre located in Delray Beach, Florida, at roughly 6:30 a.m. this past Wednesday (March 14).

It is alleged that Torres, 21, set a pair of fires inside a building. No people or animals were hurt by the fires, but a pool table was one of the things that was torched.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue officials have said that the blaze caused roughly $50,000 in damages.
