TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) - Orange County authorities say a man suffered burns trying to put out a fire that significantly damaged a home in Tustin.

Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi says six adults were displaced by the blaze reported just before 2 a.m. Monday.

It took 40 firefighters more than an hour to knock down the flames at the two-story house.

Officials say the fire apparently started in an upstairs bedroom and spread to the backyard of the property, where there were a number of combustibles stored, including furniture, blankets and mattresses.

Concialdi says one man was hospitalized for treatment of first- and second-degree burns on his arm and hand.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Concialdi says there were no smoke alarms in the home.
