A man was hospitalized in serious-to-critical condition after a house fire in the Southwest Side Ashburn neighborhood early Wednesday.

Firefighters responded about 1:45 a.m. to the fire in a one-story house in the 3800 block of West 86th, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said.

A man was taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Knight said. His age was not immediately available.

The fire has since been extinguished and no other injuries were reported, Knight said.
