Zachary firefighters rescued a man from a burning mobile home in the early hours of Thanksgiving Day, Zachary Fire Department Chief Danny Kimble said.
Firefighters responded to reports of smoke coming from the mobile home in Sweet Briar Mobile Home Park on Samuels Road shortly before 2:30 a.m. When they entered the home, they found a 58-year-old man on the floor and pulled him to safety, Kimble said.
Paramedics took the man to Baton Rouge General Mid City.
The fire was brought under control quickly, Kimble said. Investigators believe the cause of the fire was a pot left on the kitchen stove
