SIMI VALLEY — A man suffered serious burns on his hands and arms when a fire broke out Wednesday night inside his large hillside home in the Santa Susana Knolls area, authorities said.
The name of the 53-year-old man was not immediately available, but fire officials said he was taken to Simi Valley Hospital with second- and third-degree burns.
A second man, 56, who was inside the house when the fire started, was uninjured. Authorities also said a woman at the scene was being treated for chest pains, but it was unclear whether she lived in the house.
The blaze started shortly after 7 p.m. inside a two-story, wood-sided house in the 5800 block of Oak Knolls Road. Flames shooting from the home were spotted by firefighters, who were in the area on another call.
