LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities are trying to figure out what started a fire that injured two men in a Las Vegas house's backyard Tuesday evening.

Responding firefighters found the yard on fire and the two men with burns described as serious but not life-threatening.

Fire officials say cause of the fire is under investigation and that family members at home had no idea how the fire started but said it happened after the two men walked to the other end of the patio after getting out of the pool.

There was no damage to the house.
