                        A California man was caught on camera pouring diesel fuel onto his neighbor’s house in an effort to burn a ghost out of the residence, police said.

                        In the video, he pours diesel onto the porch of the Stockton home and attempts to light it, but the fire never ignites.

                        A woman and her two children were asleep inside the house at the time of the early Thursday morning incident.

                        The man, who lives across the street, was quickly arrested after the family called police.

                        "They arrested him," the homeowner said. "He said that he didn't have anything against us, that he thought he saw a ghost in our house and to me that's just even scarier."

                        The man, 38-year-old Cuong Pham, was charged with arson and attempted murder.
