    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.

    Dallas firefighters saved one person and a dog from an early-morning house fire Tuesday.

    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.
