Nude man escapes after setting fire inside home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A local man escapes from a fire inside his home but he did it without clothes on.

Firefighters were called to the 3700 block of Joplin Avenue just before midnight Thursday.

Authorities say the man accidentally started the fire in a closet, filling the house with smoke. He then ran into the street wearing nothing but a blanket.

His two cats also escaped the flames. The man's mother also lives there, but was out at the time.

Fast work by firefighters kept the flames from spreading.
