Cops give lighter, cigarette to kerosene soaked man...
Kubota refused to change his kerosene-soaked clothes at the police station and asked to smoke during questioning, according to police.
Despite no-smoking rules in the building, a police official gave him a pack of cigarettes and a lighter. When Kubota stood up, his right knee was ablaze and he quickly turned into a fireball, the reports said.
