Chris Ausefski, fire chief for the Wexford Volunteer Fire Company, said the injured firefighter was with the Adams Area Fire District. The firefighter was treated for second degree burns and released.

Ausefski said there are no fire hydrants in the area. He also said the location of the house and the driveway made it difficult for crews to get to.

Firefighters brought two 3,000-gallon pools to fight the fire.

Firefighters said the roof collapsed and the house was most likely a total loss. The road in the area was temporarily closed when the crews cleared the scene.
