Published by on

Man Arrested For Setting Fire To Christmas Tree Outside Fox News Headquarters Quick, somebody check Chris Cuomo's alibi.

The tree, which is notable for being situated outside Fox News' midtown studio (which is inside the building, downstairs from other Rupert Murdoch-controlled media properties like the NY Post and the Wall Street Journal), attracts crowds of holiday gawkers every year since it's located just around the corner from the 30 Rock Christmas Tree.

The flames quickly consumed the tree, and also damaged three other nearby trees decorated with Christmas lights.

Video of the blaze was shared on social media by local TV news stations which covered the fire.

ABC 7 NY reported that the suspect in custody was an adult male from Brooklyn.
