Wexford Volunteer Fire Company Fire Chief Chris Ausefski said the injured firefighter is 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 home and the driveway made it difficult for crews to reach.
Firefighters brought in two 3,000-gallon pools to help fight the fire.
Fire officials said the roof caved in, and the house is most likely a total loss. The road in the area was temporarily closed as crews cleared the scene.MORE NEWS: FEMA Program To Reimburse Families' Funeral Expenses For COVID-19 Related Deaths
