The homeowner was taken to the hospital with second degree burns on his hands. One of his tenants helped pull him and a dog to safety. A second dog may have died inside the house.
"I came out the back door to see what it was and that's when I saw the flames coming out of the windows," said neighbor Kevin Harrell.
Neighbors say they weren't surprised by what happened because the home was rundown. Arson is investigating.
