Bridgeport, W.Va. (AP) -- Investigators say black Friday apparently saved the life of a Bridgeport man whose house caught fire.

Assistant state fire marshal Mackey Ayersman says a pair of early bird shoppers saw the fire at Jason Jaggi's residence at 4 a.m. Friday.

They beat on the windows and apparently awakened Jaggi, who was found by firefighters in a hallway.

The 28-year-old Jaggi was taken to West Penn Burn Center in Pittsburgh.

A hospital spokeswoman said she could not release his condition.

Ayersman says the fire originated at a couch in the living room but the cause hasn't been determined.
