The trouble began with the dispatch of the house fire in the 5600 block of Holmes at 5:38 a.m. Saturday morning.
Pumper 29 rolled-in at 5:42 a.m.- reporting a "working fire" and went inside with "a handline."
At 5:46 a.m.- the firefighters on Pumper 29 report "a mayday-" they are reportedly trapped inside on the 2nd floor and their handline became inoperative- and a 2nd-alarm response is immediately dispatched.
By 5:50 a.m.- the trapped firefighters have found their way outside.
The 3 males- reported by EMS as ages "43-" "29" and "36-years-old" were taken to Research Med Center with non-major burns and some smoke inhalation.
The fire was brought under control by 5:54 a.m.- and a fire investigator is on-scene to determine the cause.
None of the home's unknown number of occupants were hurt.
