Man injured as fire breaks out in Mart home

KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) - The brisk winds fanned the flames as firefighters worked to put out a house fire in Mart Thursday afternoon about 3 p.m.

A family of three was inside the wood-frame home on North Carpenter. The father was taking a nap and woke up to find flames and smoke coming from the kitchen. He led his wife and son outside to safety, but went back inside to save some personal belongings.

He had to break a window to escape the burning house a second time. He suffered cuts on his hands and sustained minor smoke inhalation. He was given treatment at the scene.

The fire chief and the home owners suspect the fire resulted from electrical problems. The house is a total loss.
