Three Parks and Recreation employees ran up to help the man, putting out the fire. The man’s name has not been released.
Yellow police tape can be seen cordoning off the burned debris. A Gatorade bottle with some clear liquid inside is also within the perimeter, presumably containing the fuel used in the blaze.
