KETTERING, Md. - A burned woman who said she was set on fire by her husband ran to a polling place for help Tuesday morning in Kettering.
A volunteer handing out voting information at Kettering Middle School told FOX 5 the victim was nude except for a small black jacket and most of her body was severely burned.
A neighbor said the poll volunteer asked her to get a blanket.
"I ran in the house, got a blanket, I walked over," said Diane Sollers. "I couldn't really look at her , I put it over her shoulder. She was visibly burned, she was visibly unresponsive, she had a blank stare." The victim's home on Herrington Drive was also on fire.

Fire investigators confirm the blaze started during a domestic dispute. They said both the woman and the man inside the home had critical injuries.
Sollers said the woman's husband was later taken out of the house by authorities.
