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.

It's too bad she's getting all nutty. She was real cute there for a while. Did you ever see her in Maxim magazine ? Nothing wrong there, she looked great.

Mental illness isn't funny people and shouldn't be made fun of! It's horrible for all persons involved if you have a loved one inflicted with it. Praying Amanda finally gets the help she so badly needs!

Its a shame. I used to work for Amanda's uncle. She was always a sweet and talented person. Always when these young stars come of age, they think they can handle it all. Obviousley not. GET HELP AMANDA.

Mental illness is a very real thing. This is not a case of spoiled celebrity, she's sick. Its not like she's starting fights at night clubs or driving her bugatti too fast. She obviously needs help. Nice work America
