A firefighter Thursday night was taken to Highlands Hospital in Connellsville for treatment after fighting a fire in the city.

Several companies, including New Haven Hose, responded to the alarm just after 9 p.m. at a vacant structure at 239 S. Carnegie Ave.

Firefighters remained on the scene for several hours. At one point, all firefighters were ordered out of the building as it was reported the roof was collapsing.

The name and condition of the firefighter who sought medical attention were unavailable.
