Well, I'm not exactly sure how this happens, and the police aren't either, but a man on fire ran out of an adult entertainment store in SoMa Wednesday night, says the SFist.

Lt. Kevin McNaughton said at 6:10 p.m. at the Golden Gate Adult Superstore on the corner of 6th and Mission Street, a man ran out fully engulfed in flames.

San Francisco fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge told Bay City News the man collapsed just outside the store.

Lucky for the unidentified man, emergency personnel just happen to be in the area.  Lt. Troy Dangerfield told AP several onlookers tried to help the burning man as he ran past them. He said a fire department unit who was responding to a call just up the street eventually grabbed the man and extinguished the flames.

He was taken to St. Francis Memorial Hospital where he was treated for burns he suffered over 90 percent of his body,  varying from first- to third-degree burns.
