Suffolk investigators have released photos of someone apparently setting a fire at Martin Luther King Elementary School in Wyandanch and are seeking the public's help in identifying the person.

On Sept. 27, someone poured an ignitable liquid and started a fire near four large LPG tanks at the rear of the building on Mount Avenue. The tanks and building were damaged.

Images from a security camera show what appears to be a female wearing a hooded sweatshirt and gloves.

Arson detectives ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential and the caller will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $5000 for information that leads to an arrest.
