WAHPETON (KFGO-AM) -- A Wahpeton man suffered burns to his hands, arms, and head when the S-U-V he was driving burst into flames Thursday afternoon.
Lynn Korbel, 59, was taken to St. Francis Medical Center in Breckenridge. His condition is unknown.
Korbel had a gas-powered weed trimmer and a chainsaw in the vehicle. Firefighters say he was smoking and the cigarette ignited gas fumes. He managed to get out of the vehicle on his own.
