A 48-year-old Avra Valley man was flown to Arizona Burn Center at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix early Tuesday morning after escaping a house fire.

Avra Valley fire officials said the man and a woman escaped the mobile home fire that started around 2:15 a.m. The fire was confined to the bedroom, where it took fire crews about 30 minutes to put it out.

The man is in serious condition, and suffered burns to his torso, arms and hands.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
