A man in a blazer set the door of a Hollywood house ablaze twice within a few moments in Monday’s early morning hours.
Surveillance video shows the man walking up to the door of a house in the 1100 block of Jefferson Street around 3 a.m. and lighting it on fire. He leaves, but returns a few minutes later in a four-door black Mercedes for repeat pyromania.
Hollywood Fire Rescue put out the second fire, and the house was empty. But police would like to talk with the fire starter.
