BOSTON (CBS) — One man was seriously burned as a result of a fire at a house in Hyde Park.

Lieutenant Bem Claiborne said the man was rescued because of his “grumble.”

“We got to the top of the stairs and kind of looked around. Then we heard a grumble,” Claiborne said. “The pipe man, he definitely heard someone. The pipe man, we picked up and carried him outside.”

A witness says the victim was seriously burned.

“He was pretty bad. His whole side was burned,” she said.

Fire officials say the man lived there and was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is listed in critical condition.
