Authorities in Las Vegas say a man intentionally set two fires with incendiary devices at the Trump International Hotel Wednesday night.

According to NBC-affiliate News 3, the man has been identified as 28-year-old Roger Fraley.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Fraley set one fire in a women’s restroom near the pool and another on the 17th floor of the 64-story luxury hotel.

He used paper and towels stuffed into four toasters to start the fires, which were put out before they could cause extensive damage.

One security guard was injured while apprehending Fraley.

Clark County Fire Department spokesman John Steinbeck said he didn’t see any initial evidence that the suspected arson was politically motivated but said that can’t be ruled out.

According to business publication Pace Vegas, Fraley’s Facebook doesn’t appear to have any anti-President Trump posts, but he does have a tendency to refer to himself as “Yahweh,” a sacred name of God.
