SANILAC COUNTY (WJRT) (12/19/2017) - A 1-year-old boy remained in intensive care a day after being pulled from a house fire that left his 3-year-old brother dead.

Phoenix Green was being treated for smoke inhalation and other unknown injuries at Hurley Medical Center on Tuesday. His father, 29-year-old Jeremy Green, was released from the hospital on Monday.

They, along with the boys' 25-year-old mother, escaped a fast moving fire that consumed their mobile home in the 300 block of West Snover Road near Sandusky.

Jeremy Green awoke to find the kitchen and dining room area on fire just after 1 a.m. He and the boys' mother were able to escape safely.

Green then ran around the side and pulled the 1-year-old to safety through a window.

He was unable to save 3-year-old Dominic Green, however. Firefighters found Dominic's body in a bedroom after knocking down most of the fire.

Authorities were still investigating what caused the fire and whether smoke detectors were functioning properly. The Sanilac County Sheriff's Office Arson Investigation Team, Detective Bureau and the Michigan Fire Marshal's Office all were assisting in the investigation.
