The Fort Myers Police Department is looking for a man they say is responsible for a fire at a Fort Myers car dealership late Monday night.

Firefighters had to put out a red Hummer at Global Wholesale Motor Company, located at 2225 Cleveland Ave. The crew worked quickly to stop the flames from spreading to other cars in the lot.

The owner came to the scene and let police and firefighters look at the surveillance video.

Fort Myers police released the photo of the suspect they say set fire to the Hummer. Police say the fire did approximately $1,500 worth of damage.

If you have any information about the man in the photo or the fire, you are asked to call Fort Myers Police Detective Averill at 239-321-7797 or email
