The victim was in serious condition when he was taken to a regional burn center, Chenworth-Price wrote on the association's public information page on Facebook.

Fire company officials notified the state fire marshal's office regarding the man's injury, but the on-call investigator "determined no further investigation was warranted on our behalf," Senior Deputy State Fire Marshal Oliver Alkire wrote in an email.
