The home address, according to Phoenix Fire officials, was recognized by a Scottsdale fire unit as where their fire engineer's father-in-law lives in, and it was that very crew who treated and transported the resident. The man, identified as being in his 70s, suffered minor burns to both of his arms.

Firefighters said the man was "very lucky". An investigation into the fire is ongoing.
