GOSNELL, AR (AP) - Authorities in northeastern Arkansas rescued a man from a burning home - then arrested him later on an outstanding warrant.

Gosnell Fire Department Capt. Darryl Grissom says firefighters responded to a trailer fire Monday night. Grissom says flames were shooting out from the front of the trailer when firefighters arrived.

Grissom and Gosnell Police Department Cpl. Keith Hill pulled the man to safety through the window of the trailer. Grissom tells The Courier News (http://bit.ly/1evuQIC ) that the man suffered smoke inhalation and a cut on the head.

Grissom says the man was taken to a Blytheville hospital for treatment but also was arrested by Gosnell police for an outstanding warrant. The man remains in the hospital in stable condition.
