A fire at a Manchester home on Wednesday was arson, according to Manchester police, who are now looking for a suspect.
Police said someone broke into a home early Wednesday morning and poured gasoline and lighter fluid all over the first floor, then lit it on fire. There were three people home at the time, including a teenager and a toddler.
The suspect used a yellow, 5-quart Pennzoil container, according to police, who believe that person may have filled the container at a local gas station before the crime.
