A man is critically injured following a house fire Monday night in Minneapolis. 

The Minneapolis Fire Department said crews responded to a fire at a two-and-a-half-story duplex around 9 p.m. at the corner of North Russell and Lowry avenues. There was heavy fire coming from the front of the home.

Firefighters were able to rescue a man who was on the first floor by breaking a window and pulling him out, the department said.

Medics administered first aid before taking the victim to a local hospital to be treated for burns and smoke inhalation. The fire department reports he is in critical condition.
