A man died after he was pulled from a burning home by firefighters Saturday morning in northeast Kansas City.
Kansas City firefighters responded to a house fire at 5619 St. John Ave about 8 a.m. Smoke billowed from the single-story structure, said Battalion Chief James Garrett. Firefighters were told people were inside.
A man, who had not been identified Saturday, was found at the rear of the house. Garrett said the residence had no working smoke detectors.
The man was transported to a local hospital where he later died. No other people were found in the house.
Neither the amount of damage nor the cause of the blaze had been determined Saturday.
