Police and witnesses came together to rescue two men from a burning home in Pueblo. That's according to the Pueblo Fire Department.

It happened at 302 N Glendale in Pueblo just after 11pm Tuesday night.

Witnesses say the house was engulfed in flames when the men were rescued.

When firefighters arrived, one man was unconcious in the street and one was talking with police. Both men have been airlifted to Denver hospitals.

Firefighters tell 11 News they believe they know the cause of the fire. They say one of the men admitted to smoking, while on medical oxygen.

The firefighter we talked to says this happens way too often and suggests no one smoke near medical oxygen. He says people should leave the area, if they plan to light up.

11 News is working to bring you updates on the conditions of these two men. Stay with KKTV for updates.
