Who should I sue, the homeowner or the guy who poured gas on the fire and burned me?

Question Detail: I was sitting a few feet away from a fire pit and a guy was pouring gasoline on the fire. He spilled gas on me and burned 29 percent of my body. The guy who burned me was not the homeowner but a close relative. He was also very intoxicated. The homeowner's don't have homeowner's insurance either.

Answer: You'd sue them both. The idiot with the gas can for being stupid and the homeowner for failing to supervise him and allowing gas to be poured on the fire. Gee, intoxicated? I would have never guessed. Your biggest problem is there being no insurance, try finding a lawyer to sue someone with no chance of recovery. That’s probably not going to happen.
