A 1-year-old child was injured after authorities say his mother's intoxicated ex-boyfriend set a Christmas tree on fire.

The suspect, wearing only boxer shorts, ran from the home after firefighters arrived. He was chased but got away from the home on Chicago's Southwest Side in the 4800-block of South Kolin.

The child had mild burns and was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
