A man was killed in a house fire in Santa Fe Thursday afternoon.

First responders found the victim unconscious inside the burning home and began performing CPR.

Firefighters had to cut through a window to get the victim out.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The 65-year-old man's name hasn’t been released.

The fire started around 2:30 p.m. in the kitchen of the home in the 700 block of Algoa-Friendswood, according to Santa Fe Assistant Chief Chris Anderson.

A caretaker said she was cooking at the time and wasn't able to put the fire out herself. She told investigators she wasn't able to pull the victim out of the house.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
