    A 66-year-old Fairhaven man is in critical condition after suffering from burns and smoke inhalation from an apartment fire Saturday night, according to authorities.

    Firefighters responded to McCormack Manor on Washington Street around 6 p.m. after receiving several calls about a fire box alarm that soon turned into a fire.

    When crews arrived on scene, they saw heavy smoke from the rear of the multi-unit-3-story apartment building.

    Fire fighters entered the building and found the kitchen on the first floor heavily involved in fire.

    The fire department pulled out the 66-year-old victim and rushed him to St. Luke's Hospital.

    Authorities said the victim was later transported to Massachusetts General Hospital by Boston Medflight due to the severity of his injuries.

    Crews were able to contain the fire on the first floor, but the second and third floors of the building sustained smoke damage.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.
