BATAVIA, N.Y. (WHEC) — A man was rushed to the hospital after he was burned in an apartment fire Monday night.

According to the City of Batavia Fire Department, two people were inside the apartment on Bank Street when a fire broke out around 9:15 p.m. Fire crews believe the flames started in the kitchen and quickly spread.

A woman was able to make it out safely, but the fire chief says a man was seriously burned and transported to Strong Memorial Hospital. A third resident was not home at the time of the fire.

The apartment is being called a total loss, but other units in the building are fine.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. News10NBC is working to find out the victim's condition.
