Pa. Firefighter Rescued From Burning Home

HARRISBURG, Pa. --

Harrisburg firefighters had to rescue one of their own from a burning home Tuesday afternoon.

The firefighter was working on the first floor of a home on North 12th Street when he fell through a hole created by a fire in the basement.

He escaped without injury.

Fire officials are looking into whether squatters may have been using the furnace in the basement.
