The three-year-old victim was found in a back bedroom. Crews were unable to get to him due to heavy flames.
FOX25 spoke with a neighbor, who saw the flames and called 911.
"There were flames coming from the bottom floor and out the windows," the neighbor said.
Two firefighters suffered minor injuries. One was treated for twisting a knee, the other was treated for smoke inhalation.
The fire chief said it was unclear if the home had working fire detectors.
