NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - A Newport News man was seriously hurt during an overnight fire in the Denbigh section of the city.
Fire crews were called to battle the house fire in the 300 block of Thalia Drive just after 2 a.m.
The smoke detector in the home alerted the man who lived there. He attempted to put out the fire himself, but then he had to escape, according to Battalion Chief Steve Pincus.
The man suffered smoke inhalation and received cuts during his escape and was transported to Riverside Hospital in serious condition.
Most of the fire damage was contained to the kitchen, but there is smoke damage throughout the house. Battalion Chief Pincus said the fire was ruled accidental, due to unattended cooking.
The home is being condemned.
