PHOENIX (CBS5) -

One man was hurt trying to go back into his burning home to save his dog overnight in Phoenix. 

Fire officials said the blaze happened in a mobile home park near 36th Street and Bell Road early Thursday morning.

The couple in their late 60s that live there both got out OK, but the woman was taken to the hospital for minor smoke inhalation and the man suffered minor burns to his neck after going back in to save their dog - something firefighters warn not to do.

Investigators are still looking into what may have caused the fire.
