An Oklahoma City woman is recovering at an Oklahoma City hospital after being set on fire. Oklahoma City Police say the 36-year-old woman was involved in a drug deal with three black men in an abandoned van behind her home.

Police say an altercation developed and one of the men threw a lighted object at the woman and she caught fire. One witness told police the badly burned woman is lucky to be alive.

Oklahoma City Police and fire crews are investigating the case. No arrests have been made, but the three suspects could face arson and attempted murder charges.

Police say the woman's burns are significant, but not life threatening.
