Crews were called to Bauer Ave. around 6 pm Friday on reports of a bedroom fire. They arrived to find the flames had spread into the kitchen. They quickly put out the fire, but the family will not be able to stay there.

Officials at the scene said one firefighter suffered a heat-related injury. He was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

The Red Cross was called to assist the four adults and one child living in the home.

The cause remains under investigation.
