    KPRC-TV reports security video captured Monday's fiery incident outside a residence.

    The video shows the man setting an item on fire, putting the flaming object down and then he tries to smash the car window with what appears to be a brick. The video shows the man stepping on the burning item, which engulfs the car in flames as he runs away. The vandal's pant leg is on fire.
