| by Michael Allen

Magician Wayne Houchin recently had his hair set on fire by television show host Franklin Barazarte in the Dominican Republic (video below).

Houchin wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday that he is "resting, healing & working through the legal process."

The incident happened during a November 26 appearance on the 'Closer To The Stars' TV program, reports the Daily Mail.

For reasons unknown, Barazarte poured 'Agua de Florida,' a flammable cologne used in Santeria rituals, on Houchin's head, which quickly ignited.

Houchin recalled the incident on Facebook: "I was not aware he was going to do this. This was not a stunt or part of an act, this was a criminal attack. The fast actions of the rest of our Curiosidades team saved my life. The fire was put out and I was rushed to the emergency room. I have bad burns on my head, face, neck and right hand."

"The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country full of beautiful people. The outrage here and outpouring of support has been incredible. The support, love and well wishes that has been sent my way through social media, blogs, forums, friends and fans has been both humbling and overwhelming. Thank you."
