A man is on the loose after setting fire to a Staten Island gas station.
Video shows the suspect filling up a gas can at a station on Richmond Avenue and Victory Boulevard early Monday morning. The man then begins spraying gas around and then lights a piece of paper on fire.
There’s an eruption of flames that nearly engulfs the suspect before he flees the scene.
A sprinkler system at the gas station extinguished the flames. Police are continuing their search for the suspect.
