Seattle-area man burned, says woman set him afire

The Associated PressJuly 16, 2014 

— Police in the south Seattle suburb of Renton say a 52-year-old man who walked into a convenience store early Wednesday seeking medical help told officers and medics that a woman poured gasoline on him and lit him on fire.

The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of serious but not life-threatening burns.

Renton police say the incident happened at an apartment complex near the store.

They say the victim had a "significant relationship" with the 40-year-old woman officers are looking for.
