SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Investigators in southwest Florida are trying to find a man who they say set fire to a gay nightclub.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office reports that a neighbor reported flames at the front entrance of Throb Nightclub around 9 a.m. Sunday. Sprinklers prevented the fire from spreading, but damage was estimated to be more than $10,000.

Surveillance video shows a tan-skinned man wearing a dark, long-sleeved shirt and light-colored shorts walk up to the door carrying a gas can. The man starts the fire and leaves the area.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff’s office or the State Fire Marshal’s arson hotline at 877-662-7766.
