A St. Petersburg man was rushed to the hospital with severe burns after a pot of grease caught fire inside his home.
It happened on 15th Street North. Police said the man has severe burns on both legs and one arm. A neighbor rushed in to help, getting the man outside and then grabbing a hose to try and put out the flames.
What he saw left him shaken.
"He was burned (badly), too," said neighbor Larry Bynum. "He must have tried to catch that pot, and it ripped the skin right off of him."
The victim was taken to the burn unit at Tampa General Hospital. There is no word on his condition.
