NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was burned when he tried to put out a fire at his home overnight.

Metro fire officials said the man was woke up around 1 a.m. Thursday to find his mobile home on Eatons Creek Road was on fire.

He was the only one inside, and attempted to put out the fire by himself. He suffered burns to his arms and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

The mobile home suffered serious damage, and firefighters will likely be back at the home Wednesday morning to make sure hot spots don't pop up.
