OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- The man Ogden police say was seen running out of a garage on fire is still in the University of Utah Hospital's burn unit with severe burns.

A woman who spotted 25-year-old Juvencio Garcia running out of her neighbor's garage Saturday called 9-1-1. Firefighters found the man lying on the sidewalk with his clothes half off.

The man was burned over about a third of his body.

Police say they don't know what he was doing on the property and he may have been trespassing.
