CBS Evening News reported that "A man in a motorized wheelchair set himself on fire near the White House Friday, sending Secret Service agents rushing to secure the scene. The executive mansion was put on lockdown with the president inside." Good thing the Secret Service was there and the scare was taken care of quickly. I believe reports stated the man who set himself on fire was taken to a nearby hospital and will probably be OK. Just very odd that he would do that.
