Waterloo man turns garden hose on mobile home fire

Posted: Updated:

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -- A Waterloo man has used a garden hose to keep flames at bay from outside his mobile home after it caught fire.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that the man awoke around 7:15 a.m. Friday and discovered the blaze. He suffered cuts and abrasions on a hand as he fled. Fire Battalion Chief Mike Moore says the man then used the hose to battle the fire before help arrived.

The man's injuries were treated at the scene.

Moore says the fire apparently was touched off by a candle in a bathroom.
