Firefighter Injured While Battling House Fire

 WINSTON-SALEM – A Winston-Salem firefighter suffered minor injuries Friday while helping knock down a house fire.

The fire happened around 4 p.m. in the area of Kernersville Road and Robbins Road.

A passerby noticed smoke and called 911. By the time firefighters arrived, flames had engulfed the home.

“We did have one firefighter that was injured. Something fell from the structure and came in contact with the firefighter.

He is okay, but he’s just being checked out to be sure,” said Chris Langham with the Winston-Salem Fire Department.

The house was vacant, and no one was inside.

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.
