PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Fire crews helped pull a young man out of a burning building in Philadelphia over the weekend.

Firefighters say the early Sunday morning fire in the Roxborough neighborhood sent two people to the hospital. Officials say a woman, her daughter, and daughter’s boyfriend were inside the home.

Firefighters say the home was fully engulfed in flame by the time they arrived. The 25-year-old man required rescue from the building and had stopped breathing.

Officials say the man was revived by emergency crews on the front lawn, and then transported to a hospital. The daughter was also transported to an area hospital with minor injuries for observation and the woman was uninjured.

Firefighters also rescued a dog and two cats from the home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
