NEW YORK (WJW) — A man was charged for allegedly setting fire to an outdoor dining area in Queens on October 18, the New York Fire Department said. It was all caught on camera.
The suspect, identified as Oscar Vidal by authorities, was arrested on November 1 and charged with four counts of arson, criminal mischief, intent to damage property, as well as reckless endangerment, according to the FDNY.
