PHOENIX -- A fire sent a Phoenix man to the hospital with second- and third-degree burns.

The 77-year-old man was burned from head to toe when his bed caught fire at his home near 20th and Dunlap avenues.

He survived and is being treated at a Valley burn center.

Firefighters said the man is a smoker and sleeps with an electric blanket, but they don't know yet if either of those caused the fire.
