A neighbor says a man using propane to heat a home had an accident which sparked a house fire Monday morning.

Beaumont firefighters were called to the house in the 1600 block of Avenue I just after 9 a.m.   A man said his neighbor was lighting a propane heater when he lost control of the flames.  The fire quickly spread to another home.

A statement issued by the Beaumont Fire Department says one man received first degree burns to the face while attempting to extinguish the fire.  He was treated on the scene by Beaumont EMS.

Both homes are said to be a total loss.
