Editor's note: The Colorado Springs Fire Department said in a press release Tuesday that it's possible rodents chewed through the insulation of a power cord, leading to an electrical fire. The damage to the trailer will leave the resident displaced indefinitely, the release said.
Firefighters rescued a man from his burning home Sunday morning in northeast Colorado Springs, reported Gazette news partner KKTV.
Just after 4 a.m., firefighters responded to a fire at the Crestline Mobile Home Park near Mark Dabling Boulevard. The mobile home was consumed by flames when they arrived.
While searching the house, a man was found inside and taken to a hospital. His injuries are unknown at this time.
"I did do what we call a transitional attack fairly quickly," Lt. Kevin Ducy with the Colorado Springs Fire Department told KKTV. "Put the fire out fairly quickly, and upon what we call a primary search -- looking for victims -- they did find one individual adult male in the home. Brought him out immediately."
Crews had the fire quickly under control and investigators are now working to determine the cause.
