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.

Moments later, cops located Amanda and placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold believing she could pose a danger to herself and/or others.

As for the dog, it's current whereabouts are unknown ... but we're trying to track it down.

They need to keep her in the psychiatric ward. This girl needs help. And if they release her, she'll eventually end up hurting herself. Her mind is clearly unstable.

The look on the dogs face hes so pissed off. I bet hes so glad to be away form her!
You can not accidently spill gas on a little dog.
She went to grandmas house snuck in her back yard and was going to burn that little dog alive!
Suddenly she sobered up and had second thoughts. Its attempted murder!!
someone should spill gas on that wig that looks like rats have been sucking on it and set her a -blaze.In her crazy mind she thought the dog was ugly and need to be burned.That balck guy in the viedo looks like he thought hey perfect time to rodd this atm, Freaks sure do belnd in easily in cali.

BYTCH doesn't know how to start a fire.
You use wood , paper a lighter.
Keep feeding the fire a litt le paer at a time tell its going nice and hot. No gas required, and if you get it hot enough you can burn anything easly .
A dogg would sta y away fromt he gas and the fire.
The gas on the dog had to be intional.
She was going to roast him and changed her mind !
Thank God they finaly got her on 51/50.
A dog is mans best friend!!

This chick should not be allowed to have any animals. That poor dog is probably dead.

She needs to be permanently committed. A danger to society. Hope the poor little dog is o.k, an innocent victim of the psycho.

WTF!!! Who in their right mind would allow this train wreck to care for another living creature. She can't even be trusted to brush her own teeth. I don't know if her behavior is a result of a tumor, mental illness, psychotic break, or just a cry for attention. Regardless, this girl needs help.
