A man and a dog were injured in an early-morning house fire in Dallas Tuesday.
Firefighters arrived at a home on the 900-block of Chevez Drive in north Oak Cliff at about 3 a.m. and spotted flames coming from a one-story woodshed behind the home.
The shed was attached the home by a short roof extension, but firefighters were able to stop the spread of the fire before the home became fully involved.
The man who lived in the home suffered minor burns while escaping the fire and was taken to an area hospital. His dog, a pekingese, was given oxygen and water by firefighters but is OK.
Investigators determined that the fire began due to an electrical short in the shed.
Losses are estimated at $55,000.
