COPY-Fire crews find man unconscious inside Sioux City home
A Sioux City man went to the hospital after fire crews were called to a home on the east side this morning.
Fire and rescue crews got a call around 9:30 Thursday morning about a house fire at 2801 11th Street. When they arrived, crews found the residence full of smoke, but no flames. Officials said a man was found unconscious inside the home, but regained consciousness once outside.
"They just went in to investigate to see if we could find a fire, which is standard procedure and they found the occupant in one of the rooms. There was a fire, but it was out when crews got there," said Assistant Fire Chief Pat Flynn.
The man was taken by ambulance to the hospital. His identify and condition are still unknown. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
