Wichita firefighters were called to an apartment fire in the 9100 block of East Harry early Sunday morning.

Wichita Fire Captain Jose Ocadiz said a neighbor heard a smoke alarm around 5:00 and called 911. 

First responders reported heavy fire and smoke showing when they arrived. They quickly made an aggressive attack and performed a search and rescue operation.

Ocadiz said a male victim was discovered inside. He was taken to St. Francis Burn Center in critical condition.

He says the man will be interviewed when he is able to help determine a cause of the fire, which was confined to the one apartment.
