PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia man is hospitalized in critical condition after police say he accidentally lit himself and a home on fire while getting high on drugs.

Police say the 29-year-old suffered second and third-degree burns over 60 percent of his body in the fire early Friday in the city’s Kensington section.

They say officers found the man on fire and running from the home around 12:30 a.m. He was taken to Temple University Hospital. No other injuries were reported.
