WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man suffered critical injuries Saturday in a Wichita house fire, officials there said.

The fire was reported around noon Saturday in the southwestern part of the city. Arriving firefighters found the home and a car engulfed in flames, and crews soon found a man who had suffered burns and pulled him from the flames. The man was taken to a Wichita hospital in critical condition, officials said.

It took firefighters longer than expected to get the blaze under control, but officials don’t think Saturday’s wintry weather played a part.

Investigators are trying to find out what caused the fire.
