Surveillance video shows suspects lighting pet shop on fire

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Surveillance video has been released showing two suspects lighting a local pet shop on fire.

The arson happened in late January, inside the Prince & Princess Puppies & Boutique.

Video shows a woman and a person in a hooded sweatshirt entering the facility at 1 a.m.

The person in the sweatshirt appeared with containers that look like gasoline cans. That person doused the facility with liquid and then ignited the liquid.

Within seconds, the entire shop was filled with flames.

Moments later, the sprinklers turned on, saving the lives of all 27 puppies that were caged inside.

Prosecutors accuse pet shop owner Gloria Lee and boyfriend Kirk Bills of starting the fire.

They face multiple charges ranging from arson to attempted animal cruelty.
