Gupta lit himself on fire at approximately 12:20 p.m. Wednesday afternoon near 15th St. and Constitution Ave. near the White House, according to the Secret Service.

Park Police said Gupta was taken to a local hospital after the fire was extinguished.

A man last month set his jacket on fire along the north fence of the White House on Pennsylvania Ave.

He was later sent to a local hospital with what the Secret Service said were non-life threatening injuries.
