One hospitalized in fire at home in Kalamazoo

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Crews were called out to battle a house fire in Kalamazoo Thursday evening.

Dispatchers say the calls came in around 9 p.m., for a fire in the 700 block of Academy St.

Firefighters at the scene told FOX 17 an elderly man was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The building had been converted to an apartment complex and crews are in the process of reaching out to tenants.

Public Safety agencies took to social media to tell people to avoid the area while firefighters worked to put out the flames.

No word yet on what caused that fire.
