Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two people allegedly connected to an arson fire in the North End.

Witnesses told police they saw a gasoline-ignited fire around 5 a.m. Saturday in Board Alley next to 241 Hanover St. The fire was extinguished, and officers could not find any suspects.

The incident is under investigation. Police asked anyone with information to contact Fire Investigations Unit detectives at 617-343-3324.
