‘Arson is not only a serious crime but also an extremely reckless act that can have devastating effects on the entire community,’ said Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. ‘Our Fire Marshals quickly apprehended this individual before he caused any further damage or harm to New Yorkers.’
Hussein is charged with Arson in the third degree; Reckless Endangerment; and Criminal Mischief in the fourth degree. The case will be prosecuted by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office.
