Kevin Doll with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said Brown was trying to cook butane hash oil inside his home Sept. 3 when a fire started, burning his house down.

Deputies said Brown took his drugs and fled the residence, leaving behind a 1-year-old child and two dogs. The child wasn't hurt, but the dogs died.
