COSTA MESA (AP) — Authorities say a man was rushed to a hospital burn unit after lighting himself on fire at an Orange County nail salon.

Costa Mesa Police Sgt. Clint Dieball says the man walked into the salon, doused himself with a flammable liquid and set fire to himself just after noon Sunday.

Someone inside the salon doused the flames with a fire extinguisher.

Dieball says the man was burned but alive when paramedics took him to a hospital.

Investigators have not determined a motive. Dieball says the man’s wife or girlfriend was inside the salon at the time, and the couple had been estranged.

Nobody else was hurt.

The salon, Creative Nails & Spa in Costa Mesa, sustained minor fire damage.
