The information available at this stage indicates that two police officers attended the address in Honicknowle following an emergency call from an occupant shortly after 9pm.
The caller advised that another resident at the premises, the 32-year-old man, was in the garden with a can of flammable liquid.
Shortly after the police arrived, the man sustained serious burn injuries and an ambulance was called. Police records indicate an officer deployed a Taser during the incident.
The spokesman said the man's condition was "life-changing, but is not considered to be life-threatening".
The investigation will look at to what extent, if any, police actions caused or contributed to the man's injuries, and whether police acted in accordance with procedures.
