A 12-year-boy pulled from a burning house in North Philadelphia was taken to a hospital with no reported vital signs Monday night, fire officials said.

Firefighters responded shortly after 10 p.m. to the 1800 block of North 27th Street, where they found smoke coming from a two-story house, officials said. The boy found in the house was transported by a medic unit to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The fire was brought under control about 15 minutes later. No further information was immediately available.
