Man rescued after going back into burning home

Posted: Updated:
GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

Gresham Fire Department is trying to figure out what started a mobile home in Gresham.

It happened on Plamquist Road at the Hogan Meadows Mobile Home Park.

Firefighters used a saw to cut through some metal window bars to free a man trapped inside.

The man had run back inside to get his cat but the pet had already run out.

One firefighter gave the man a gas mask to keep him from breathing in the smoke.

The man was treated for minor injuries.

The house was heavily damaged in the fire and the cause is still under investigation.
