ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Firefighters have rescued a man from a burning portable toilet just north of downtown St. Louis.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/13nmqAz ) reports that the man was rushed Friday night to a hospital, where he was in critical but stable condition.

A fire department spokesman says the fire was “pretty well-involved” by the time firefighters arrived. It was not immediately known why the man was inside the portable toilet or why it was on fire.
