The department released surveillance video which it said shows Hussein setting the booth on fire using an "ignitable liquid."

"Arson is not only a serious crime but also an extremely reckless act that can have devastating effects on the entire community," FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said in a statement. "Our Fire Marshals quickly apprehended this individual before he caused any further damage or harm to New Yorkers."

Hussein is also charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.
