I read a more detailed article in today's Edmonton paper. He is retired soldier, and he didn't even dial 911! He didn't think it was a big enough emergency so he called the regular number.

Wow!,
They sure breed them tough up in Canada.

Took a bath to cool down and applied skin lotion to his burns, before deciding to call an ambulance.
He was waiting outside wearing his coat, when it arrived

Don't think I would put skin lotion on burnt skin, but hey, this guy obviously knows what's best for him!.

Tough, smart and not afraid to admit he was the cause of his own pain:

"...he was recovering in a hospital "in good spirits, laughing, talking and blaming the incident on his stupidity."

We can hope he gets some help while he trains the 'youngsters' how to get along in life!
