MIAMI (WFLX) - Freak motorcycle fire injures a Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy.

Richard Ragali was off-duty and riding to Key West with several other deputies when they stopped to get gas in Marathon.

Ragali's bike fell over and a hot tail pipe touched gasoline on the ground. That's when the bike burst into flames. The deputy has burns on up to 60 percent of his body.

Right now he's at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.
