Dude steals lottery tickets, then accidentally sets himself on fire

An arsonist broke into a convenience store, stole a scratch-off lottery tickets, tried to cover his tracks by setting a fire, and in the process, set himself on fire.

Safarez Chunara surveyed his store on Friday -- the first time he and his family had seen the damage. The inside is completely torched. But how it happened is not -- the surveillance video was left in tact.

In the man's hand appeared to be charcoal lighter fluid. Within seconds, he began to douse the store. At one point, he spotted the surveillance camera above him and sprayed it. At that point, the lighter fluid was sitting there with the fumes accumulating, so when he got to the point of igniting it, the fumes had already built up. So that when he tries to set the store on fire, he sets himself on fire.

The fire ignites his face, and all around him, and that's were it looks like he got some flash burns. While still on fire, the suspect grabbed rolls of lottery tickets. » Article here
