A 60 year old man has sustained burns to his hands and lower legs after using flammable liquids as a weed killer around his garden at home in Craigieburn.

Last night at almost 7pm, the pilot light from the hot water system ignited from the fumes coming off the ground, which resulted in the garden catching fire rapidly.

The man was taken to hospital.

Always use materials, especially dangerous flammable liquids for the purpose in which they’re originally intended.
