SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - One man is dead and a 7-year-old critically injured in an early morning apartment fire in Shreveport.

Shreveport CBS affiliate KSLA reports that firefighters responded to the fire just before 2:30 a.m. Friday.

Authorities say 30-year-old Antroious T. Kinsey was found dead at the apartment complex. Firefighters say a 7-year-old was revived at the scene and sent to the hospital.

Firefighters say it appears the man went back into the apartment to rescue the 7-year-old but collapsed from the smoke.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
