A Lexington man is recovering from burns he suffered when a home went up in flames late Thursday night.
The man says he was trying to see if anyone lived inside the house on De Roode Street just off South Broadway.
It turns out the burning house was abandoned.
Firefighters say no utilties were hooked up to the home, making the fire suspicious.
Firefighters say the house burned a few months ago, as well.
Some homeless people had been staying inside the home at times.
The man suffered burns to his legs and went to the hospital.
He's expected to be OK.
