AUSTIN, Minn. (AP) - A southern Minnesota man has died in a kitchen fire the day before his birthday.

Austin Fire Chief Jim McCoy says 58-year-old Michael James Langan died in the house fire just outside of Austin on Thursday night.

The Mower County Sheriff’s Office says Langan’s son, 19-year-old Dakota Langan, called 911. McCoy says firefighters and sheriff’s deputies arrived to see Dakota Langan trying to escape the fire through a bedroom window. Authorities broke more glass in the window and pulled him out.

The son was taken to Mayo Clinic-Austin with apparent smoke inhalation and minor injuries from trying to get out the window.

Friday would have been Michael Langan’s 59th birthday.
