An evening fire in Evanston took the life of a man believed to be in his 60s.
Flames were first spotted shortly after 5 at the home in the 1900 block of Hartrey Avenue.
Firefighters removed the man from the first floor of the home, but he had suffered severe burns.
He later died at Evanston Hospital.
Evanston firefighters say the blaze did damage to the first and second floors of the home, but did not spread to other buildings.
They were able to put it out by 6.
