Garage & House Fire 

Perry Rd, Troutman, NC

A subject who was despondent decided to commit suicide by burning himself up. He caught the garage on fire, and after experiencing minor burns, decided this was not the way he wanted to go. He was treated at the hospital for minor burns. The closeness of the garage to the house caused the house to become involved as well. Multiple departments were dispatched to the call at approximately 0130 hrs.
