An elderly man escaped injury after his home in Tustin erupted in flames early Thursday morning.

The house was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived at the home on the 1500 block of Lanai Way at about 3 a.m.

It took 40 firefighters more than 30 minutes to bring the two-alarm fire under control. The said big trees and live wires created obstacles in the fire fight.

Part of the home collapsed and looks to be a complete loss.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
