DUNMORE, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — One firefighter was sent to a hospital after first responders were called Wednesday evening after reports of a structure fire in Dunmore.
Just after 5:30 p.m., emergency crews were called to Tiffany Drive in Dunmore for a fully engulfed garage attached to a home.
Firefighters on the scene told 28/22 News one person was home when the fire started. They say the person at home exited safely and called 911.
Dunmore Fire Captain Michael Rinaldi told 28/22 News the firefighter was inside when a ceiling fell on them. They were able to get out and were transported to Geisinger CMC, according to Captain Rinaldi. Their condition is unknown at this time.
At about 9:50 p.m., Captain Rinaldi said crews fully extinguished the flames and departed from the scene. A State Police Fire Marshal has not listed a cause at this time, however, it does not seem suspicious.
This is a developing story and 28/22 News will provide more information as it becomes available.
