There were some freighting moments in the northeast part of San Angelo monday. It all started in the 17 hundred block of Beacon Street. Around 3:30 monday afternoon the San Angelo Police Department received a call that a man was allegedly threatening to burn down a home on Beacon Street. Police rushed to the scene to investigate and found a man in his late 40's who had doused himself with gasoline. During the ensuing encounter the man caught on fire. Officers put the fire out using fire extinguishers. Authorities are still not sure if this was some kind of freak accident or if the fire was deliberately set. The man did survive and was rushed to Shannon Medical Center for treatment. This case is still under investigation.
