A Long Island firefighter could be looking at jail time after police say he torched a car after an argument.

The Nassau County Arson and Bomb Squad says North Bellmore firefighter Matthew Greve will be arraigned in Hempstead on arson charges.

Investigators say he filled a water bottle with gasoline and then used it to torch a Jeep Cherokee.

The vehicle was destroyed.

Police say Greve did it after a dispute escalated because he had a grudge against the owner.
