Three people walked to safety after a fire broke out in their Anaheim home Tuesday but a fourth resident suffered injuries while trying to put out the blaze with a garden hose, authorities said.

The blaze was reported at 12:15 a.m. in the 1000 block of North Rosemont Street, said Anaheim Fire Department spokesman Daron Wyatt, adding that the first responders escorted three residents from the home.

A man who was in the backyard attempting to extinguish the fire with a garden hose suffered minor facial burns and was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and observation, but his injuries were not life-threatening, Wyatt said.

About 25 firefighters from Anaheim and Fullerton knocked down the fire within 15 minutes, containing it to one bedroom, Wyatt said.

The cause of the fire was under investigation and a damage estimate was to be tabulated.

The four residents displaced by the fire were being assisted by the American Red Cross in securing temporary accommodation, Wyatt said.
