In Local News, News

A man is recovering from third-degree burns he suffered after setting himself on fire following an argument with his estranged wife at Creative Nails & Spa in Costa Mesa, according to the Orange County Register.

After the couple argued, the man sat in a puddle of liquid in the middle of the floor, a customer of the salon said.

The man then proceeded to light himself on fire as the customer called the fire department.

The salon owner’s brother used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames, while employees used towels to help stop the flames.

A customer said the man is the store owner’s husband and that the couple is going through a divorce.

A representative for the Costa Mesa police department called the situation a domestic dispute.

The inside of the salon had minor damage from the incident, police said.
