Bay City House Fire Injures Firefighter, Child 4-15-2011

Bay City firefighters were called to a home at 815 Fremont Street on Friday afternoon.
While battling the house fire, one firefighter received minor burns while going into the home to rescue a 3-year-old girl. She was found on the second floor. The girl was transported to U of M Flint Hospital after suffering second- and third-degree burns to 60 percent of her body.
Fire officials said the firefighter was treated for burns to his face and is already back to work.
Several neighbors called authorities after seeing fire coming out of the second story window. At the time, there were two other children in the house, a 15-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl. Both escaped the blaze unharmed.
Crews arrived in under six minutes as Station 2 is about two blocks from the house.
The home was heavily damaged. Investigators are trying to find out if there were adults at the home when the fire started. The fire's cause remains under investigation.
