Lake Villa Police are looking for an unidentified man caught on a security camera who they say set fire to two single family homes.
Emergency units responded to the fire on Friday around 7:25 p.m. in Lake Villa, according to a release from Villa Lake Fire Chief Ron Roth. No one was home at either of the residences set on fire and flames were extinguished with extensive damage reported, he said.
A home security camera shows an unidentified man walking on the home's back deck and seen setting fire to the home's outside kitchen wall with what is suspected to be an accelerant and road flare.
Police released the video in hopes someone with information will come forward. Tipsters should contact the Lake Villa Police Department at 847-356-6106.
