Firefighter shot at scene of blaze in western New York
By The Associated Press
Webster, N.Y. -
Authorities say a firefighter has been shot while responding to a fire at a suburban Rochester home.
Officials in the town of Webster tell local media outlets that someone shot at firefighters around 6 a.m. Monday when they arrived at the scene of the blaze just east of Rochester.
A fire official with the West Webster Fire District tells the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester that the firefighter is listed in satisfactory condition at Strong Memorial Hospital.
Officials say the house is still burning and the fire has spread to a second home.
A man answering the phone at the fire station says firefighters are unable to battle the blazes because the area still hasn't been secured by police. The man says no other information is being released.
