Surveillance video obtained exclusively by TLS shows the frightening moment a man surrounded by flames from a burning chemical runs from the Breadberry Supermarket in Lakewood.
While putting the finishing touches on the County Line Road supermarket, a chemical being used to polish the floor somehow caught fire.
The unidentified employee grabbed the burning bucket of chemicals and ran outside with it, saving the new store from severe damage, but burning himself in the process.
The man was airlifted to the hospital but is expected to make a full recovery.
“We wish the man a full and speedy recovery,” Breadberry says.
Breadberry added, “We are putting the finishing touches on the construction, and we look forward to serving the community very soon.”
