Here is another local story to show the dangers of fire and how we should not be playing around with it.
A man is recovering after being intentionally set on fire in Reno.
It happened around 3:30 a.m. Monday, March 5, 2018, near the Farris apartments on 4th and Sage Street.
The Reno Fire Department got a call of a man that was doused in gasoline and lit on fire near the area. Firefighters and REMSA arrived on scene and transported the victim to Renown Hospital. The fire department says the victim might have to be transported to Davis Medical Center for further treatment.
Shortly after transporting the victim, the Fire Department got a second call of a shipping container on fire behind the Hi-Way Motel near the area where the victim was burned. When firefighters arrived on scene they found a working fire and were able to knock it down.
Since the two incidents were so close in proximity, firefighters are investigating if the incidents are related.
The shipping container had evidence of someone living there and the man who was set on fire was homeless.
The incident is still under investigation.
