Fire officials say a Salina man died after being critically burned while trying to rescue two dogs from a house fire.
Salina Fire Marshall Roger Williams says the victim was injured in the fire Wednesday morning after he got one dog out of the burning home. He tried to go back in to the house for a second dog but first responders stopped him.
KSAL reports the man was flown to a Wichita hospital, where he later died.
The second dog was found dead in the house.
Williams says the fire started in some wiring behind a freezer in a garage.
