Only in Hamilton

NZ Herald

Ok it could happen in Palmerston North too:

Police are searching for a man who walked into a petrol station and set fire to a pool of petrol on the ground before running away.

Emergency services were called to a Z service station in central Hamilton about 1.30pm today after a man walked into the forecourt, lifted a pump nozzle and put it on the ground before activating it, police said.

He then lit the petrol with matches, before running away on foot.
