Two men suffered extensive burns in a Sunday evening house fire on Third Street, the Modesto Fire Department reported.
The victims, who were not identified, were found outside the home on the 900 block of Third after the call at about 6:40 p.m., Division Chief Michael Lillie said. The fire was quickly controlled.
One man suffered second and third-degree burns over about 50 percent of his body and was taken by air to the UC Davis burn center in Sacramento, Lillie said. The other went by ambulance to a local hospital with second and third-degree burns over about 30 percent of his body, he said.
It is not yet known whether the injured men live at this house, he said.
We will have more on this story.
