Emergency responders saved a man and woman from a Conroe house fire early Monday morning.

Around 1:20am, Conroe firefighters were notified of a house fire in the 300 block of South Sandra Street. Conroe police arrived first and ran inside the house, pulling out a man from the burning home. Soon after, firefighters arrived and ran inside the house and saved a woman they found inside.

The house was fully engulfed in flames during the time of the rescues. Both victims were transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where they are both listed in critical but stable condition.

It took about an hour to bring the blaze under control.

Detectives are trying to determine the cause of the fire.
