(Scroll down for video) A drug dealer ran into his burning home to save his stash, but left his dogs to die in the fire, according to police in Florida.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said that they arrested 24-year-old Steven Brown, after being accused of arson for causing the fire that destroyed his home.

Brown has been charged with possession of a place for purposes of manufacturing a controlled substance, arson, possession of a firearm, cocaine possession, suboxone possession, oxycodone possession, tampering with physical evidence, marijuana manufacturing, marijuana possession, aggravated cruelty to animals and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was booked into the Pasco County Jail, and his bail was set at $795,100.

According to the criminal complaint, Brown and his accomplices were manufacturing butane hash oil (BHO), also called wax marijuana, when the stash exploded.

After the explosion, the house burned down. Instead of rescuing his two dogs during the fire, Brown removed all the drugs from the property.

Both dogs were discovered dead in the home after firefighters extinguished the blaze.
