Albany -- An Albany man has been airlifted to the Augusta Burn Center, after suffering serious injuries when his home burned early Friday morning.

51-year-old Lewis Redman suffered second and third degree burns on his hands and arms. He is listed in stable condition. Firefighters were called to his home in the 800 block of Cason Avenue at 2:45 Friday morning.

Redman's 20-year-old son escaped the blaze by jumping out a side window. Redman was hurt trying to find him. Albany Fire Department Assistant Chief James Carswell said "Actually information last night stated that he was trying to get back in to make sure everybody was out."

The cause of the fire has not been determined. The house sustained 35 thousand dollars in damages.

 Investigators call another overnight fire suspicious, after a mobile home burns. Firefighters were called to a mobile home at 923 Mercedes Avenue late Wednesday night. The bed in one bedroom was burning.

Thursday night about 11:45 firefighters were called again by neighbors. Investigators say two fires were started in each end of the mobile home.

The owner of the mobile home, Ethel Sazer is out of town. Her son has been living in the home, but was not there when firefighters arrived. The mobile home is a total loss. Police and Arson investigators are looking into the fires.
