LA police seeking suspect in Mormon temple fire

Los Angeles police are looking for a man they believe set a suspicious fire at a Mormon temple.

Police Wednesday released a video showing a man with a backpack and a thermos walking up to the West Los Angeles temple on May 17.

The man goes up to the locked doors, then turns and walks away.

Police say about three hours later, a fire broke out in the temple's garden area.

A police statement says it's believed the man had combustible materials in the backpack.

He's described as being in his late 20s, wearing a red T-shirt and blue jeans.
