Man in critical condition after house fire

A man is in critical condition after he was burned in a fire on Bacon Street early yesterday, according to the Natick Fire Department. The 45-year-old man, whose name was not released, was found unconscious inside a burning house, said fire Chief James Sheridan. He was treated for second- and third-degree burns to his hands, arms, chest, face, and respiratory tract, Sheridan said. Sheridan believes the fire was caused by careless disposal of smoking material.
