A man in his 30s was in critical-to-stable condition after a fire broke out in a vacant two-story home in the South Side’s Archer Heights neighborhood Saturday night.

The fire was located in the attic and second floor of a home in the 3300 block of West 38th Place, according to Fire Media Affairs.

A man, who was a squatter in the home, suffered serious burns and some smoke inhalation, and he was originally taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, said Fire Chief Joe Roccasalva. The man’s condition later stablized, Roccasalva said.

“It was pretty bad,” he said.

The fire was extinguished Saturday night, and authorities continued to investigate its cause.
