HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Arson usually involves homes, businesses, land.  But we have a case that involves something a little different: a car parked in a driveway. 

We need your help swatting this "firebug" in this week's Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.

On a home surveillance video system, you can see a man pouring some sort of liquid on a car and lighting it on fire.

It happened at a home on Cutler Drive in Huntsville July 23.

Luckily, the fire was extinguished quickly. We have pictures after the crime that show damage to the driver's side, the bumper, even under the hood. 

It could have been much worse, not just burning up a car, but burning up a neighborhood.

If you recognize the man in the video or know who he is, there's a reward of up to $1,000 for you. 

Just make the anonymous call to 256-53-Crime. 

Or text or e-mail your anonymous tips. 

Go to waff.com, click Crime Stoppers, then the Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers link to see how.
