(NBC News) Police in New York is looking for the man who tried to blow up a Staten Island gas station earlier this week.

The NYPD has released video of the Monday morning incident.

It 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 activated and extinguished the flames as the arsonist fled the scene.

A 21-year-old man who was pumping gas nearby was hospitalized with internal injuries.

We're cooling down next week with the chance for rain. Before we get there, we look to stay sunny with mild temperatures.
