        COVINGTON — Firefighters rescued a man from his burning home Tuesday morning.

        Eddie Huff, 54, of 2715 Madison Avenue was in critical condition Tuesday night at University Hospital, a nursing supervisor said.

        Firefighters found him in the first room of the house near the door. Mr. Huff had been overcome by smoke.

        He was initially taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center North in Covington and transferred to University.

        The one-story home with a walkout basement was a total loss, Assistant Chief David Brown said. He estimated the damage at $50,000. Investigators had not determined the cause of the fire, which was reported to police at 1 a.m. Firefighters were on the scene for several hours.
