A man suffered life-threatening injuries in a grass fire in the 4600 block of East Rex Road Wednesday.

Rural/Metro crews put out the blaze, which was in a homeless camp.

The patient was treated and transported immediately to a Tucson area hospital.

According to John Walka with Rural/Metro, there was a report of a possible second patient in the area. A search was conducted for that possible patient but nothing was found.

The cause is under investigation.
