Residents living in one Las Vegas neighborhood fear an arsonist is setting cars on fire near.

Neighbors took cell phone video of flames as smoke billowed from a vehicle on their neighborhood street - the video shows an SUV as it burns.

This incident was not setting off any alarms with residents until it happened again.

A person living in the neighborhood said his roommate’s sedan was set on fire Monday around 6 a.m.

Fire crews say someone dragged a mattress to the car then set it on fire.

Then on Oct. 17, crews were called out to another vehicle fire in an alley, where they found not one but two vehicles on fire.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue also responded to a laundry room fire on the same block between the two previous vehicle fires.

With a total of four fires in the past two weeks, community members said they are on edge.

Las Vegas Fire says the vehicle fires are being investigated as arson.

Residents say they believe whoever is doing this is doing it on purpose, and has some stern words for whoever may be lighting the match.
