Crews arrived and found the sprinklers were on outside the building and the plastic trash can was completely consumed by fire and smoldering.

The two windows directly above the fire were broken from the heat, firefighters said. The sprinkler system was able to stop the fire before it could spread into the building.

According to police, the man walked over to the trash can and set it on fire. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark jacket and a blue bucket hat.

The Davenport Fire Department asks for the communities help to identify the man who is responsible for lighting the fire.
