HFD says the guys in the video above are still out there, and may have even been burned. When you see how much ignitible liquids were dumped at Bar 5015, you'll understand why.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A group of men were caught on camera dumping cans of liquid onto the deck of a Houston bar that exploded last week and investigators are asking for your help in finding them.

It happened at Bar 5015 on June 12 on Almeda Road at Wichita Street.

The explosion sent debris hundreds of feet in every direction and destroyed a large portion of the business.

"What we do know is this is an intentional act of arson," Houston Fire Chief Sam Peña said. "The intent is obvious."

Four men are seen carrying 5-gallon containers and dumping the contents onto a wooden deck outside the building. One of the men ignited the liquid, which caused the explosion around 5 a.m.

The Houston Fire Department released surveillance video Thursday in hopes of finding the men.

Investigators said they believe the men involved may have been burned during the incident.

Just after the blast, accelerant-sniffing dogs hit on a couple of spots at the business, leading them to find that gasoline may have been involved, Peña said last week.

If you know who these men are, you can contact Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477 or submit a tip to the Crime Stoppers website.

Supporters have set up a fundraiser to help pay to rebuild the business.
