A man in his fifties has been arrested in the Italian municipality of Montesarchio in Campania. Camera images show how the man ignites the grass on the verge.
That fire later causes a major fire that destroys two hectares of forest. The man had been suspected for some time and was caught red-handed by cameras from the forest brigade of the carabinieri.
He faces ten years in prison.
