Florida Man Sets Self on Fire

Don’t try this at home. In Palm Bay, Florida, 50-year-old Ron Nielson accidentally lit himself on fire while setting up a display outside his home. After Nielson splashed gasoline onto the display, made up of a circle of candles around a wooden cross, he caught on fire leaving half his body with burns. According to the fire marshal, his display was not properly ventilated, which caused his clothes to catch fire.
