(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest three people on a charge of arson after setting off firecrackers at a Walmart, according to police in Arizona.

Phoenix police released photos of the three suspects who started a fire in the lighter fluid and propane bottles aisle of the Walmart located near 51st Avenue and Indian School Road.

Firefighters believe that the three people, two men and a woman, are responsible for setting off the firecrackers at the Walmart on Wednesday night.

A video of the incident shows the three suspects walking away from the fire moments after it began. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, stopping it before the flames could ignite the lighter fluid and propane bottles.

There was a lot of smoke and water damage to the building.

Walmart announced that they will be closed for quite some time. Several Walmart employees were treated for respiratory problems.

Police said that witnesses who come forward with information, may receive a cash prize for tips leading to an arrest or indictment.
