Man Sets Himself on Fire Outside of White House

Things seem to be getting weirder near the White House, as reports surfaced saying a man set himself on fire outside of the White House lawn gate.

The Secret Service took to Twitter to address the situation, saying ”A male subject operating an electronic wheelchair-type scooter lit his outer jacket on fire while sitting along Pennsylvania Ave. outside the North Fence Line. Uniformed Division Officers immediately responded, extinguished the fire and rendered first aid."

The man was treated for first-degree burns, and security measures have been heightened as a result according to CNN.
