GOODNA, November 13.

Alwyn Daye sustained severe burns on the body and arms when extinguishing a fire at the Goodna Memorial School of Arts on Saturday morning.

In trying to extinguish the fire Mr. Daye's clothes were ignited.

He used a fire extinguisher, and managed to put the fire out.

Neighbours, who were attracted by Mr. Daye's calls treated the injured man, who was later taken to the Ipswich Hospital by the Ambulance Brigade.
