"He obviously came prepared for this," Sgt. James Rothchild told FOX10. "He was trying to hide who he is, but he had the items he needed to light those vehicles on fire pretty quickly."

There may be an important clue to help investigations. During the incident, the suspect appears to burn his own hands at one point and may have sustained injuries.

"Maybe someone knows someone who recently suffered a burn and that information would help us, too," Rothchild told FOX10.
