A man who started a rash of car fires in Windward Oahu will spend 10 years in prison.

Last year, 47-year-old Thomas Chong was caught on surveillance video setting cars on fire.

One of those vehicle’s was an ex-girlfriend’s car.

By pleading guilty, Chong avoided more serious charges of first-degree arson, which would have meant up to 80 years in prison for him.
