Authorities in Texas are searching for an arsonist who was caught on surveillance camera trying to set a hotel clerk on fire in a terrifying robbery attempt this week.

Footage of the “absolutely horrific crime” shows the man walking into the lobby of a Fort Worth hotel Sunday night, demanding cash from the clerk and threatening to kill him if he didn’t comply, fire department spokesman Mike Drivdahl said in a video statement.
