A man is in the hospital following an early morning fire in Monroe.
The blaze broke out around 2:30 in a home at 24 Squire Road in the town’s Barn Hill section.
Officials say a woman and four children made it out safely.
A volunteer firefighter pulled the unconscious man out of the house. He was rushed to a local hospital but there’s no word on his condition.
One firefighter was administered oxygen at the scene but didn’t require hospitalization.
A dog was also rescued.
Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the master bedroom but not before smoke filled the second floor.
