GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Sierra Skye Fararo-Curran, 30, of Ocala, was arrested last night and charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and arson after allegedly entering a home and placing a Bluetooth speaker on a stove, setting it on fire.
An Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to the home, near the intersection of SW 63rd Boulevard and SW 63rd Court, at about 10:20 p.m. and located Fararo-Curran nearby.
The residents of the home told the deputy that Fararo-Curran had walked into the home through the back door without being invited. One resident said she was in bed when she smelled smoke coming from the kitchen and went into the kitchen to find Fararo-Curran standing next to the stove, with something in flames on top of the stove; she said the flames reached almost to the ceiling. The resident yelled at Fararo-Curran, who reportedly ran from the residence and was found by law enforcement.
Another resident said he saw Fararo-Curran walking down the hall, and a third resident said Fararo-Curran made several “bizarre statements” before walking to the kitchen.
The deputy determined that Fararo-Curran had found a Bluetooth speaker, turned on the electric stove, and placed the speaker on the burner, causing it to ignite. The residence was reportedly damaged by the fire.
Post Miranda, Fararo-Curran reportedly admitted that she entered the residence and placed the speaker on the stove. Fararo-Curran has a conviction in Marion County for driving without a valid license; Judge Thomas Jaworski set bail at $200,000.
