Manitoba RCMP are looking for a man who allegedly set fire to a business in Thompson overnight.

Police say the man filled up a small bottle with gasoline at a Petro-Canada location and then walked over to a nearby business and started the fire.

Police arrived at the Selkirk Avenue business at around 3:35 a.m. Thursday to find it engulfed in flames.

The suspect is believed to have suffered burns to his hands.

Video surveillance images show the man in the gas station and at the fuel pump moments before the fire was set.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Thompson RCMP at (204) 677-6909 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
