CHICAGO (AP) - Federal prosecutors have charged a man with setting fire to a suburban Chicago car dealership where he works.

In a news release, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago says 28-year-old Bryant Cameron of Broadview was arrested on a felony count of arson on Thursday.

The release says that on the night of July 24, Cameron poured gasoline in the front office, reception and warehouse areas of Epic Motorsports in Rosemont and set the fire with a lit cigarette. It also says that when Cameron was arrested, authorities found inside his vehicle items that had been reported stolen from the dealership.

The arson charge carries a maximum prison sentence of 40 years.

There is no listed telephone number for Cameron and it wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.
