Nebraska Firefighter Injured in House Fire


A Bellevue firefighter was injured while battling a blaze Monday night in the sub-zero temperatures.

Emergency crews were called to a home on Wilroy Road, just south of Harvell Drive, around 11:20 p.m.

Investigators said a firefighter injured his leg in a fall.

Three people who live in the home made it out safely, firefighters said.

Investigators said they believe a candle on the second floor may have started the fire.
