A quiet night shift at a Houston-area gas station turns wild in a manner of minutes.

Employees say they noticed 27-year-old Richard Baxster acting weird, but ultimately decided to call the cops when they saw him playing with a lighter in the parking lot.

When Baxter came back inside, he put that lighter to use on some items in an aisle.

"We even tried to go out there and put out the fire, but he started charging towards us," a store employee said.

The flames were eventually put out and left very little damage was done. Baxster is now charged with arson.
