Key West’s Southernmost Point Landmark Damaged by Fire

Police now say the suspects have been identified as 21-year-old David B. Perkins of Leesburg, and 21-year-old Skylar Rae Jacobson of Texas. Apparently, the suspects caused about $5,000 in damages.

Perkins has since turned himself in to the police, and is being charged with criminal mischief with damages over $1,000. Jacobson has made arrangements to turn himself into police.

Here are some of the most well-known landmarks from the state of Florida. What do you think is the most iconic sight in Florida?
