A senior citizen was taken to the hospital as a precaution after he escaped an overnight fire at his home.

The blaze broke out around 4:00 am at the mobile home at 5869 Apache Drive in suburban Lake Worth. Fire officials say they're not sure of the cause, but the fire appears accidental in nature.

The home sustained some smoke damage. The fire did not impact any nearby structures.

Only one resident was home at the time. Authorities describe him as an elderly man. He was taken to a nearby hospital to be checked out.
