Five arrests were made in connection with last month's devastating wildfires in Malibu, California.
In a press conference, Los Angeles county sheriffs said that a trail of surveillance videos, receipts, and food wrappers led them to the men who are all from the Los Angeles area.
They started the blaze while in a cave and fled the scene without warning residents.
All five men are being charged with recklessly causing a fire with bodily injury, causing fire to an inhabited structure, and arson during an emergency.
If convicted, they could face two to four years in prison.
