A 62-year-old man was sent to hospital after a fire destroyed his home in southern Manitoba.

Emergency crews were called shortly before 8 p.m. Wednesday to the fire on Park Drive in the town of MacGregor, located about 110 kilometres west of Winnipeg.

The man, who was the only person in the home at the time, was treated for smoke inhalation and released from hospital, RCMP said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
