A bungling burglar

Here's a story out of New Zealand about a man who, it seems, didn't quite finish the job he started:

Police allege 28-year-old Brett Kerr burgled a Prebbleton house, set it on fire and knocked himself out. The homeowner's son, Greg Kitson says Kerr may be the dumbest burglar on record.
Mr Kitson was amazed at how incompetent the burglar was, saying, “when it comes to burglary he's simply not a natural”.
Mr Kitson sped over to his parents' house after his wife noticed a fire in the kitchen. When he got there, he did not know who to call first. “We had a fire, we had a burglary and we had someone injured so it was like an all-play.”
He believes it all went wrong for Kerr when he tripped taking a drum set down a narrow spiral staircase, and apparently knocked himself out.
