An unidentified homeless man was taken to Bayview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries Monday after firefighters found him unconscious inside a burning single-family home in Brooklyn Park.

Anne Arundel County firefighters responded to the 4500 block of Ritchie Highway at 12:01 p.m., a spokesman said. It took about 30 firefighters 15-20 minutes to control the blaze in the otherwise vacant structure, he said.

The fire caused $40,000 in damage. Its cause is under investigation.
