LAS VEGAS (AP) - Fire officials say a homeowner is hospitalized with burns on his arms after a fire at a southeast Las Vegas home.
Clark County firefighters reported finding the man in the front room when they arrived early Friday to a report of smoke at the house on Anthony Drive. That's near Desert Inn Road and Boulder Highway.
Firefighters say fire was confined to one room, but crews had trouble dousing flames because of sheet metal on the ceiling and under the shingles on the roof.
The cause of the fire wasn't immediately reported.
