SUFFOLK -- A 61-year-old man was hospitalized Sunday afternoon after a car he was working on in his driveway caught fire.

The fire then spread to the house on Swansea Circle, in the northern part of Suffolk.

Fire crews say James Allen was working on a 1986 Mercedes-Benz in the driveway around 3:30 p.m. at the time.

Investigators say the fire started accidentally, but they didn't say how.
