Amazing Raw Vid: Arsonist Sets Fire to Salon and Barely Escapes

"I am paranoid.”

Police have released security footage showing the moments a Jacksonville, FL arsonist set fire to a salon -- and barely escaped the consuming fire:

The Florida Times-Union reports early damage estimates are as high as $100,000. Salon owner Semone Blair is a former model who, after falling on hard times, worked to raise enough capital to open the business.

“If they can find the person, then I will definitely have some peace in myself,” she told the Times-Union. “Knowing they are still out there, and not knowing why they did that is still an obstacle. … I am paranoid.”

Police released the video in hopes that someone can identify the suspect.
