How many calories does a pound of muscle burn?

According to the NY Obesity Research Center:

One pound of muscle burns about seven to 15 calories a day, not 50.

I had heard 50, so I was getting obsessed with building muscle mass. Meanwhile, I heard a pound of fat only burns 3 calories, so I need to find some facts on this.
