WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A fire official says a man has been flown to the hospital after setting himself on fire on the National Mall.

Fire crews responded Friday afternoon to a report of a man on fire at 7th and Madison streets.

A witness says she saw a man dump a red canister of gasoline on his head and then set himself on fire.
