One of the worst massacres in modern history was done with a gallon of gasoline. The body count was several times higher than any mass murder committed with firearms.

87 victims and the killer got away from the scene:

A fictionalized version of the arson, where it was an arson intended to intimidate the Latino community, was featured on Law & Order.

I remember the Happyland incident. The SOB who torched the place, in spite of being convicted on 87 counts of arson AND murder, will be eligible for parole in 2015.
