Alcohol wouldn't burn black, also the bottle looks like Kerosene to me

Last I checked, kerosene isn't that volatile, I could be wrong, but that definitely looks like the work of gasoline, or one of the other highly volatile petroleum solvents with a low flash point. Diesel and kerosene have a flash point over 100F, they behave more like motor oil or wax.

The dude had a lighter and 100F really, really isn't that high. The air where I live is generally hotter than 100F

The flash point is the temperature where holding a lighter near the substance can set it on fire, if the flash point is higher than room temp (this is a hospital, no way it's over 75F), the lighter will need to be held directly to the fuel in order to heat it up past the flash point, which will take some time (with a good wick, one second may be enough, with a non-ideal wick, like a pair of pants, a few seconds would be needed, with a puddle or open container, good fucking luck, you need something bigger than a lighter for that). After that the rest of the fuel isn't up to the flash point so the fire will spread at the pace it is able to heat the surrounding fuel enough to set it on fire, first it would crawl upwards, then slowly downwards, and anything not heated by the fire would remain unlit. Setting kerosene or diesel on fire takes enough time that they would have been able to stop the guy, or put it before it got out of hand, and the stuff on the floor would not have set on fire at all. 100F is the lowest flash point for kerosene I could find on Google, it can be as high as 162F, diesel is higher than 126F.
