Police are looking for a man who siphoned gas from a U-haul truck but caught himself on fire in the process.  In the video you can see the man fleeing while he himself was still on fire.  The thief left the scene with the fire still burning the U-haul truck.   The incident is likely involving intoxicants or drugs and a another reminder of the deep seated problems Portland faces.
