Police are hunting for an arsonist who broke into, and used petrol to set alight, a Byford restaurant — leaving it’s new owner with a near $250,000 damage bill.

Within a minute, the restaurant had been set alight.

Owner and father-of-two Sam Sing had bought the Olsen Gardens business only two months ago.
