The man, who lives in an apartment in Västerås, is now accused of the district court in the district of Västmanland for general harmlessness.
The fire took place at the beginning of the year and caused both fire and smoke damage in the apartment and in the stairwell.
"The fire has thus endangered the lives or health of others or the massive destruction of another person – owners of property and owners' property," the prosecutor writes in the lawsuit.
The fire was discovered by an acquaintance of the man who acknowledged that he smoked and dropped his thumb in bed.
With the recognition, the public prosecutor is of the opinion that the court can decide the case without a main negotiation and that the penalty must then be a daily fine of SEK 8,000 in total.
