The fire was reported by police at 1:56 a.m. in the 6600 block of Park and five fire companies responded.

Heavy smoke was reported coming from a 1-story structure when the first fire company arrived at 2 a.m. with a reported "fire in the rear basement" area.

At 2:08 a.m.- the firefighter was injured.

The fire was under control at 2:20 a.m.- and the firefighter- reportedly burned on "the forearms- neck and ears" was transported non-emergency to Research Medical Center.

It was later reported that a 2nd firefighter was treated by EMS at the scene for a very minor injury.

Arson is suspected as the cause of the fire.
