One man is behind bars and another is fighting for life in hospital after allegedly being doused in petrol and burned in western NSW.
Emergency services were called to a home at Wellington, near Dubbo in the state's Central West, about 5pm on Thursday following reports of a blaze.
Initial investigations suggest the fire was deliberately lit.
A 52-year-old man suffered serious burns to more than 60 per cent of his body and was flown to Concord Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
Police allege he was doused in petrol during the incident.
A 46-year-old man was later found at a nearby property and taken to Dubbo Base Hospital for treatment of burns.
He was arrested and charged with the domestic violence-related offence of causing wounding/grievous bodily harm with intent to murder.
The man was refused bail to appear at Dubbo Local Court on Friday.
