TEMPE, AZ — Firefighters say a man has been hospitalized with serious burn injuries after a fire broke out at a Tempe home Saturday.

Fire crews from Tempe and Chandler were called to the fire near McClintock Drive and Baseline Road around 5 p.m.

When crews arrived, they found heavy smoke billowing from a single-story home. Officials say firefighters made an aggressive attack and were able to keep the fire from spreading to a second home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, according to Tempe Fire Chief Andrea Glass.
