    WATCH VIDEO REPORT AT LINK.

    FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - A Forsyth County man is accused of setting a car on fire and investigators said he's also responsible for fires at two buildings in his own neighborhood.

    Piyushkumar Mistry, 38, has been charged with three counts of arson.


    Channel 2's Matt Johnson obtained cellphone video that shows a car on fire on Saddlebrook Glen Drive Wednesday around 1 a.m.


    Authorities believe Mistry also set a fire at the clubhouse of the Springmonte subdivision last Wednesday and three days later, set the pavilion behind it on fire.

    “Everyone went from being on edge to just flat out scared,” neighbor Staci McCravy said.

    Neighbors estimate the damage will reach $200,000.

    “We think something was left on the doorstep. The entire outside of the door is charred,” neighbor Christine Jacobson said.

    Property records show Mistry lives just a quarter-of-a-mile from the clubhouse.





    “That is just crazy. I had no idea that something like that could happen in my neighborhood,” Jacobson said.


    Investigators are trying to figure out why Mistry might have set the fires.

    "There's still a lot of questions that we have to answer: a motive, whether there were other people involved and what the ultimate goal was," said Barry Head, Forsyth County Division Fire Chief.

    Authorities suspect Mistry committed arson while his 5-month-old daughter was home alone. Neighbor Beth Metheeny said authorities knocked on her door around 2 a.m. Wednesday with the baby.

    “Their 5-month-old was in the arms of police officers who asked if he could come in and take care of the child in our home, change her, feed her while Division of Family and Children Services was on the way,” she said.

    Sheriff’s deputies said they pulled Mistry over in the neighborhood for a traffic violation shortly after they believe the car fire happened. They said there was evidence in the car that made them suspicious.

    Johnson learned Mistry’s wife, Disha Ratilalbhai Tank, 31, was arrested just a day before the last fire on unrelated battery on an officer and littering charges. Both Mistry and his wife have immigration holds on them.
