Man and fire - level 2
A man in England wanted to destroy somebody’s van by burning it. He squirted flammable liquid on it and set it on fire, as well as himself!
The man then ran down the street with his arm on fire and drove off. A security camera filmed the incident.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the attack, which took place on February 5th. However, the front door and windows of a nearby house were damaged. Police are still looking for this man.
Difficult words: squirt (spray), flammable (it burns very easily), drive off (drive away).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
