NATIONAL CITY - A National City man and his dog escaped a fire that broke out at their home Sunday evening in National City.
National City Fire Department crews responded to the 900 block of East 6th Street just after 6 p.m. to find flames and heavy black smoke coming from the roof.
People watched near by as emergency crews quickly knocked down the flames. Fire crews remain on scene for a few hours putting out the small flare ups inside the home.
The man was treated for a minor burn and a firefighter was slightly injured by a falling ladder.
The fire may have been electrically-caused, officials said, although that was not confirmed.
