DALLAS (July 23, 2012)--A Dallas resident safely escaped from a burning house early Monday, but four of the firefighters who battled the blaze were slightly hurt.
Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says the four firefighters suffered heat-related problems while battling the pre-dawn blaze Monday.
Evans said all four were treated at the scene.
The National Weather Service said temperatures were in the low 80s at the time of the fire, which was reported at around 3:30 a.m. Monday.
Investigators say electrical short in the attic caused the fire.
Evans says the home sustained about $125,000 worth of damage.
