A man is hospitalized with burns and 10 other residents are temporarily displaced because of an early morning fire at the assisted living unit of a Mesa retirement complex.

The fire sparked in a third story unit at "The Springs" near Recker and Broadway Road around 2:45 a.m. on Monday.

Mesa Fire Department spokeswoman Larissa Dvorak says the man has second- and third-degree burns on 50 percent of his body.

Dvorak says the other residents are displaced because of water damage from sprinklers that had already put out the fire when firefighters arrived Monday morning.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Dvorak said it appears it started in the bedroom.
