Two suspected arsonists in California accidentally set themselves on fire while trying to burn down a small business in California.
A video of the incident showed the two unidentified individuals trying to set the ‘Servicio de Imigracion’ in Bakersfield on fire, a company that provides immigration and naturalization services.
The footage taken from the security camera shows the two masked vandals approaching the business and dousing it with gasoline.
One of the individuals leans over to ignite the gasoline but is suddenly engulfed by a rapid inferno.
The suspected arsonists can be seen running away with flames trailing up their legs as the other repeatedly slips trying to escape the fire.
“Ahhh!” one of the individuals is heard screaming with what appears to be their lower back and buttocks on fire.
First responders arrived on the scene shortly after, and the flames were put out, ABC 23 reported.
The business owner, Max Solorzano, told the station that Bakersfield must do more to protect locals.
“They have to work harder in that aspect, in keeping the community safe,” he said.
“We are a small business and we help many people, so there will be people who will not be able to receive our services due to inactivity.
“That is what most saddens me,” he continued.
“We help many farmworker families with their immigration processes, we help people do taxes. We ask our clients to have patience with us, we will get through this.”
The attack’s motive is still unknown, and the suspects still haven’t been found.
