VIDEO: A Phoenix firefighter is in the hospital recovering after a beam fell on top of him while he and his crew were battling a house fire Saturday night.
According to Phoenix Fire Department officials, crews responded to a house fire near 7th Street and Greenway Road after receiving calls of heavy smoke in the area. Firefighters arrived and saw smoke and flames coming from the attic of a large home.
While crews made an aggressive interior attack and conducted search and rescue for anyone possibly inside, a portion of the ceiling gave way, and a beam fell on top of a firefighter inside. The firefighter was quickly rescued by his crew and brought outside of the home and taken to a nearby hospital. Officials said the firefighter was in stable condition and speaking with doctors at the hospital.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
