Man Who Died Saturday Night In Embarcadero Station Identified As Paul Addis: News: SFAppeal:

Addis was perhaps best known as the man accused of prematurely setting fire to the Burning Man sculpture in 2007, as an act of protest against the event.

According to a Bay Guardian article from 2010, Addis spent two years in a Nevada prison for the Burning Man incident, during which time he developed a one-man show entitled Dystopian Veneer, which he brought to San Francisco in April of that year.

Several of Addis' friends reached out to the Appeal in hopes that we would update our earlier story on the events surrounding his death with his name.
