(NBC) - Police in New York are looking for a man who tried to blow up a Staten Island gas station earlier this week.
The NYPD released a video of the Monday morning incident, which shows the man purposely spraying gas around the pump as he fills a red gas can.
He then lights a piece of paper on fire and places the flaming paper on the spilled gasoline.
The fuel quickly ignites with flames engulfing the man in less than a second.
The gas station's fire-suppression system was triggered, which extinguished the flames.
The arsonist then fled the scene.
A 21-year-old man, who was near the fire when it started, is hospitalized with internal injuries.
