UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Authorities say they are looking for a person of interest following an arson fire which destroyed a popular restaurant and liquor store in Prince George’s County.

Surveillance video showing the person who police believe started the June 17 fire was released on Tuesday. The fire severely damaged Tucker’s Bar and Lounge on Marlboro Pike.

Fire officials say the public should pay close attention to the person’s clothes and the way the person walks.

More than 100 firefighters were called to the restaurant to combat the fire. One firefighter suffered a minor burn injury, and fears of a roof collapse forced firefighters to evacuate the building.

The future of the restaurant, which has been in operation since 1969, is uncertain.
