Arsonist Accidentally Lights Himself on Fire

Kieran Crampton, 23-year-old, of Radcliffe UK was mad at his former employer.  Jason and Samantha Webster gave Kieran a job at J&S Conservatories and Doors. After Kieran left the company on bad terms, it is understood he argued with the Websters and this sparked two other incidents of anti-social behavior outside their home resolved by police informally. Kieran had been drinking and decided to buy a can of gas before walking more than a mile to the Websters home. He poured the gasoline all over their van, and lit it on fire, accidentally igniting himself in the process. The whole incident was caught on camera, and Kieran was easily identifiable. The fire caused the van to explode twice, waking the neigborhood and endangering the surrounding homes. Kieran appeared at Bolton Crown Court last week where he was jailed for 40 months after admitting one count of arson and he was also ordered to pay $1600.00 costs. Get more here.
