SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police say a woman is hospitalized with what are being described as "life-threatening injuries" after someone poured a flammable liquid on her and set her on fire.
Police spokesman Officer Carlos Manfredi says officers were called to city's Bayview District a little after noon by people who reported a woman screaming.
When officers arrived they found a women suffering from what Manfredi described as "severe burns."
The woman, believed to be in her 20s, was taken to a hospital where she's being treated at a burn center. Her name has not been released.
Police did not immediately release any suspect information.
About two dozen neighbors watched from their homes or stood watching from sidewalks as police investigated late Sunday afternoon.
Police tape was stretched across the home where the woman apparently lived and the house had a broken front bay window.
