Happened here recently as well. 20+mins of deco left, 3rd degree burns on his torso. Only thing that extinguished the fire was the suit melting though. The nichrome wires in the heated vest broke causing a high resistance spot that ignited the other vest materials. Not sure what the suit gas was, the victim stopped discussing the incident.
