Pa. Firefighter Falls Through Floor at House Fire

Aug. 01--A firefighter fell through a section of a burning floor while helping battle a house fire Thursday morning in Tobyhanna, said Coolbaugh Township Fire Chief Kevin Ambrogio.

Heavy smoke was seen coming from an Orchard Lane residence shortly after 11 a.m., according to the Monroe County Control Center. Ambrogio said the firefighter was taken to Pocono Medical Center for what he was told was a minor injury.

What started the fire and where it started in the home, in which no one was living at the time, is being investigated by a state police fire marshal, Ambrogio said.
