According to ABC affiliate WISN in Wisconsin, a woman was caught on camera starting a house fire that left a 72-year-old man dead.

The video, recorded live on Facebook, captures the woman breaking a window to the home and pouring gasoline inside. The suspect then sets the fire and runs off without anyone trying to stop her. 

A woman can be seen jumping from a nearby window to safety, but flames spread quickly trapping a 72-year old man inside. In the video, a group of young men attempt to break down the front door to save the man, but smoke made the rescue impossible. 

According to WISN, police have arrested the woman who allegedly set the fire. Charges are pending.
