WASHINGTON D.C. (WJZ) — A man set himself on fire outside of the White House on Friday prompting U.S. Secret Service agents to intervene.

The secret service quickly put the fire out and took the man to the hospital.  The man was transported to an area hospital for what appear to be non-life-threatening injuries, the Secret Service says.

President Trump was in the White House at the time, but was never in any danger.

The identity of the man has not yet been disclosed.

The incident took place around 3 p.m., and video footage showed Secret Service agents carrying the man to another location near the White House.
