A rioter is seen picking up a makeshift Molotov cocktail with a protruding flaming rag. As he threw it a streak of flaming accelerant is accidentally doused down his back and shoulders.
Immediately after he caught fire, he ran down the stairs in terror to search for any means he could extinguish the flames. Other rioters rushed to his aid before the camera is cut off.

The video, which appears to have been live streamed, shows a rioter lighting a fire inside the Market House — but catching fire in the process. Protesters can be heard audibly gasping as the rioter catches fire, prompting the man to flee from the building. “Get him out, get him out!” one man can be heard yelling.
Protests in Fayetteville started at 3:00 p.m. and demonstrators made their way to the city’s downtown area, where things remained non-violent until around 7:00, reports CBS 17.
At 7:15 p.m., the Market House was set on fire as well as an American flag in front of the building. The fire was extinguished within 45 minutes. More
