Cars Go Up in Flames in Hotel Next to Anime LA (Updated)

At least seven, some witnesses say eight, cars were damaged from arson in a parking lot of Azure Hotel & Suites in Ontario, California Sunday Morning.

The hotel was hopping due to Anime Los Angeles which took place this weekend at the Ontario Convention Center.

It’s unknown if the arsonist was an attendee of the convention but witnesses say around 2am a blaze was reported and the hotel was evacuated as a precaution.

Surveillance video shows a man walking up to the main vehicle, pour two cans of gasoline on it and flicking a match. The match didn’t star the fire to the individual lit it with a lighter. That fire then spread to other cars.

The convention center where the convention took place is next to the hotel.
