Amanda Bynes may have accidentally burned her dog after she intentionally lit a fire in a random person’s driveway on Monday.

The cashier went after Amanda since it was a restricted “employees only” area…and he is later seen walking out with the tiny pooch.
Amanda Bynes accidentally drenched her pet Pomeranian with gasoline while building a fire in a residential neighborhood … then raced to a nearby liquor store to clean the pooch … and TMZ has the bizarre footage.
The surveillance video — taken inside the liquor store — begins minutes after Bynes allegedly used a canister of gasoline to fuel a fire outside a random elderly woman’s home in Thousand Oaks, CA around 8:38 PM on Monday night.
At 8:39 PM … Bynes can be seen bursting into the liquor store and darting straight for a restricted “employees only” area — while holding the dog in her outstretched arms.
The cashier — sensing something was wrong — rushed out from behind the register and chased after Bynes to see what she was doing.
TMZ spoke to the owner of the store who tells us … the cashier detected a strong odor of gasoline and observed Bynes attempting to rinse off the dog in a sink in the back area.
We’re told … as soon as the cashier confronted Bynes, she “freaked out” and left the store without further incident.

As for the dog, it’s current whereabouts are unknown … but we’re trying to track it down.
One of the neighbors who saw Amanda told TMZ, that she lit her pants on fire and it look like she had a cloth on top of a gas tank and he called 911. he adds that Amanda said her dog had been burnt. She is allegedly doing well in her involuntary hospitalization. “Amanda seems to be doing well,” a source told FoxNews. “The thing with Amanda is that it isn’t as bizarre as it seems. She knows when to pull it together and act normal.”
