BOSTON (CBS) – A man who checked himself into Boston Medical Center over the weekend with serious burns is now in critical condition.

He might have burned himself trying to steal copper.

Detectives are trying to figure out if the burns were suffered during a fire at an electrical plant on Summer Street in South Boston Sunday night.

There was a possible breaking and entering there, around the same time the man checked himself into the hospital.

Police say it looks like the fire started as thieves were trying to steal copper.

An electrical saw and used cigarettes were found at the scene.

The man’s name has not been released.
