Police have released surveillance video from the fourth intentionally set fire at a townhome construction site in Gloucester Township.

The video was captured at the Iron Gate development at Jarvis and Williamstown at 2:46 a.m. on June 26.

It shows the suspect pouring a flammable liquid onto several townhomes, then setting them on fire.

The fire was discovered early by a security guard and there was no serious damage. Still, the fire burned hot enough to melt the vinyl siding and scorch the outside of two unoccupied but completed units.
