TOLEDO, Ohio — A TFRD firefighter was taken to the hospital Thursday morning for a medical reason he experienced while fighting a huge vacant house fire in west Toledo.
Pvt. Sterling Rahe says the firefighter was conscious and talking while he was being transported to the hospital. He was later treated and released.
Crews are fighting the vacant house fire on the 4700 block of North Haven.
Heavy fire can be seen coming from the roof with flames shooting out the window. The middle of the roof is partially collapsed.
Neighbors say the home is vacant and were surprised to see such a big fire.
Crews are working to get the fire under control to keep it from spreading to a neighboring house.
It is unclear at this time how the fire got started.
