WATCH: Police seek arsonist who set himself on fire

- Police in Kentucky are searching for a man suspect in an arson case, who was caught on video setting a business, and himself, on fire.

Investigators with the Madisonville Police Department released footage of the August 7th incident, showing two suspects attempting to set fire to the business using a liquid accelerant and a Molotov cocktail.

Video shows the male suspect accidentally setting himself on fire, and running across the parking lot attempting to extinguish the flames.

As he runs towards a patch of grass, the suspect trips and falls face first onto the ground. The video later shows the suspect's shoe, still engulfed in flames, flying off of his foot.

He once again tries to light the business on fire, and leaves in a mini-van.
