Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man was hospitalized after suffering burns in a North County house fire Sunday.

The blaze began about 8:10 a.m. at a single story residence on Old Castle Road about a mile east of Interstate 15 in Hidden Meadows, CalFire spokesman Nick Schuler said.

A man and his dog were able to get out of the house before firefighters arrived. He suffered minor to moderate burns on his face and head and was transported to UCSD Burn Center, Schuler said.

Firefighters saw heavy smoke and fire come out of the back of the house. The residence sustained significant fire and smoke damage, he said. The dog did not appear to be injured.
