A 3-11 alarm fire broke out in southwest suburban La Grange early this morning, killing a man and landing another person in the hospital, officials said.

Firefighters rushed to a home in the 900 block of Kensington Avenue about 1:30 a.m., said Captain David Rapp of the La Grange Fire Department.

A man in his 90s was transported from the home to Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:32 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Another person was also transported to the hospital, Rapp said.

Firefighters have extinguished the fire, but officials are still working to determine its cause, Rapp said.
