GLAMIS --- A man was flown out to a Phoenix-area hospital after suffering burns to his face, arms and hands over the weekend during an accident at the Wash 3 area, according to authorities.

The man, whose name was not immediately available, was flown out to Maricopa County Burn Center late Saturday for injuries he sustained during an apparent campfire accident, an official said.

The man caught on fire when he was pouring gasoline on a campfire, said Brawley Fire Lt. Eloy Martinez. Firefighters from Brawley and Imperial County Fire Department responded after a 11:55 p.m. call about the incident was made, according to a log entry at the sheriff's office.

Word over at Glamis was that it was a Sobe bomb gone wrong. No confirmation of that.
