SAN ANTONIO – A man was hospitalized with significant burns after he set fire to his home in the western part of the city, said employees of the fire department in San Antonio.

Firefighters were called to Pasadena’s 1600 block around 5:24 p.m. Monday. When they arrived, they found the man with significant burns in front of the house.

SAFD chief Charles Hood said the man was working on a motorcycle and something set the man on fire. His wife heard her husband shout while she was at home. The woman went out and saw that her husband was on fire.

The chief said the fire had spread to the home, causing significant damage. He said the man was rushed to the burn room at Brooke Army Medical Center with burns on his arms and legs. According to Hood, the man was alert and able to talk to those who responded.

Despite winds of 20 miles per hour and the risk of restraint, firefighters put it out quickly, Hood said. No one was injured by firefighters.
