A man suffered mild burns to his arms Sunday night after the car he was working on caught fire at his southeast Fresno home, fire officials said.
Firefighters received the call regarding a fire near Illinois Avenue and 4th Street at 8:34 p.m. and rushed to the scene, arriving to find the vehicle on fire and threatening the home, Fresno Fire spokesman John Creasy said.
The fire spread to the home, but damage was limited, Creasy said.
It is not yet known if the fire forced residents to seek shelter elsewhere, he said. The victim requested an ambulance for his non-life threatening burns.
No other information was immediately available.
