Man Dies From Fire Injuries

A man trying to escape his burning house Saturday morning has died.

This fire started around five o'clock at a home in the 900 block of Madison Avenue in Huntington.

Jimmy Love died in the fire.

Neighbors say a family of five lived in the house, but firefighters tell us they could only find Mr. Love inside.

Crews found him on the floor, about 10 feet from the front door.

They had to pull him to safety.

Firefighters performed C.P.R. but he later died at the hospital.

Firefighters say no one else was inside the house.

Neighbors tell NewsChannel 3 they don't think the rest of the family, the mother and children, was home at the time because their car wasn't outside.
