A man set himself on fire after a drinking binge, killing
A man set himself on fire after a drinking binge, killing himself and his two children in the eastern Urals village of Berezovka, the regional emergencies ministry said on Monday.

The tragedy occurred on Sunday evening, the ministry said "three people died, including a 29-year-old father and two of his sons, aged five and 18 months."

The mother of the two children, who received third-degree burns to 20% of her body, told police that the couple had been drinking at their neighbors earlier. When they arrived home they started arguing.

"The husband who was extremely angry poured gasoline on himself and the couch and set himself on fire," the mother told police. "He refused to let the children or her out of the room."

The mother is reported to be in a serious condition in a local hospital.

"The children became victims of their drunken father's premeditated arson," the ministry press release said.
