MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis police need help finding an arsonist armed with a flamethrower.

Surveillance video shows someone using what police believe to be a modified garden-style torch to set fire to bales of recycled paper outside of Pioneer Industries in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood last month. The company says the fire caused $10,000 in damage.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
