    <!--startindex-->DALLAS -- A Dallas hospital room erupted in flames when a patient wearing an oxygen mask tried to light a cigarette Thursday night.
    A nurse at Methodist Dallas Medical Center rescued the man from his burning bed shortly after the blaze started. He suffered serious burns and was taken to the burn unit another Dallas hospital, but no one else was hurt, hospital officials said.
    More than 100 other patients had to be evacuated because of the fire. The room in which the man was staying was destroyed, and medical equipment even melted, but sprinklers kept the fire from spreading.<!--stopindex-->
