Home security video captured by one of the affected homeowners shows a man throwing a lit object, believed to be a Molotov cocktail, at a window of the home. The object pierced the homeowner’s window and continued to burn inside a bedroom. No injuries were reported.

Another home was also reportedly set aflame that same weekend. Honolulu police believe that fire was created intentionally as well.

The man remains in custody on $50,000 bail.
