NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Firefighters rescued a Nashville man from a house fire Wednesday night.
Flames ripped through a home on Wilmoth Court in the Dickerson Road area.
The fire started around 8:15 p.m. in the northeast Davidson County community.
Firefighters arrived to heavy smoke and flames.
When they entered the home, they found homeowner Allen Haigler sitting on his couch.
Haigler was a member of Tennessee State University's 1973 undefeated football team.
He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for severe burns.
"Once they did find him, they brought him out on the side of the house," said Tyler Smith, a witness. "He appeared to be breathing, but he was burned pretty badly. But I think he will be okay."
Haigler's condition at the hospital's burn unit was not released Wednesday night.
