Carlisle Township – Neighbors were shocked Wednesday morning when they heard a man screaming then looked out their windows and saw a man on fire.

A neighbor, who asked to not be identified, said that the 19 year old man ran from his West River Road South home on fire. “The front of his body was on fire, he was wearing those jogging type pants – like nylon – and that was all on fire. Two people who were driving by stopped and were helping him and getting the fire out however they could.”

The neighbor said that the two people left the scene after helping the man.

Carlisle Township Firefighters and LifeCare Paramedics treated the man on scene and quickly transported him to Elyria Memorial Hospital where he was flown to Cleveland with 3rd Degree Burns.

Firefighters searched the home and property for any fires but could not find any.

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating the incident.
