MADISONVILLE, Kentucky (NBC News) Police are searching for an arsonist who attempted to burn down a building and ended up lighting himself on fire.
Security footage released by police Monday shows the man emerge from a van with what appears to be a Molotov cocktail, which he tosses on the ground by the building.
When he returns with a second bottle flames shoot toward his body, quickly igniting his shorts and shoe. He bolts around the corner and flings himself onto the grassy yard of a nearby home.
When he reappears on camera he is kicking off a smoldering shoe, and jogs around the parking lot. He returns to the building and slowly pours the contents of another bottle on the fire before getting back in the van and driving off.
