ST. ALBANS, Vermont — A 72-year-old physically disabled man has suffered serious burns to his back and arms in fire at his apartment in Vermont.

Firefighters say Thomas Page of St. Albans was in critical condition Wednesday at Fletcher Allen Medical Center.

Firefighters say they got a 911 call from Page at about 1:10 a.m. that his apartment was on fire and he was trapped inside. Police arrived at the scene first and heard him yelling for help. They went inside and carried him out.

Authorities rushed back and evacuated 11 other people in four attached apartments. They had to smash out windows and kick in doors to evacuate some of the occupants, who were sleeping.
