Man catches fire after lighting cigarette

Posted: Updated:

 A Kennewick man is in the hospital getting treated for serious burns.

It happened around 4:00pm today. Police say Jeff Glenn was filling up his truck at the Exxon station on Highway 395 and 27th Avenue. Once he was done he pulled onto the street, lit a cigarette and caught fire from left over gas that got on his clothes.

He jumped out of the truck, which caused it to veer off the road and hit a flag poll.

 No one else was injured and he was taken to KGH.
