The moment the cafe erupts in flames.

Two brazen arsonists who set a Maroubra store alight have been caught on dramatic CCTV footage.

The video released by police shows two masked, hooded men break into the cafe. One splashes fuel around while the other holds an open flame perilously close to the accelerant.

A huge fireball erupts when the premises are lit.

Police said the incident happened in May at a shop on Anzac Parade and that those living above the store needed to be evacuated.

One of the men was filmed running across Anzac Parade with his leg on fire.

Here's the moment of ignition again:

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.
