Cameras also recorded the suspects fleeing the scene.
“As the suspects were fleeing, it appears that the hand of one of the suspects was on fire,” the Anchorage Police Department wrote in a Facebook post. “The suspect removes his glove, which is on fire, tosses it and then both suspects flee through a fence door.”
Police believe both suspects were injured in the incident, the post said.
A patron of the restaurant started a GoFundMe page to help the business owners.
The restaurant fire is one of two suspected arson cases to recently occur in Anchorage, although police don’t believe the two are related, according to the Anchorage Daily News.
