A homeless man was charged for allegedly setting fire to a New Jersey apartment building that left two people dead and nine injured, authorities announced Sunday.
Brandon Adams, 34, is accused of intentionally igniting the early Sunday morning fire in Camden, the county prosecutor’s office said.
Authorities drew that conclusion “based in part on assistance and information provided by the community,” the prosecutor’s office said in a press release.
Several people were forced to jump from windows to escape the blaze, authorities said. A firefighter was among those injured.
The two victims who died have not yet been identified.
Adams was charged with two counts of first-degree felony murder.
