Man critically injured in home fire

March 11, 2010

An Indianapolis man was critically injured Thursday morning in a fire on the city’s near-south side. Firefighters pulled the unidentified man from his burning home in the 800 block of Minnesota Street about 6 a.m. The homeowner called 911 to report the fire but failed to get out before firefighters arrived at the scene. Rescue attempts were complicated by clutter blocking the front door and several side windows.
