SUMMERSVILLE - Emergency responders identified a Nicholas County firefighter recovering in the hospital after he was injured on the job.

Jared Cruse with the Summersville Fire Department fell through a floor of the home, and his condition is unknown, according to the Facebook page of the Richwood Volunteer Fire Department. 

The fire happened on McMillion Drive in Summersville around 2:30 Sunday morning. 

One fireman had burns to his upper body and fluid in his lungs. A colleague sustained minor injuries after coming to his aid. 

"The firefighter -- after being pulled out of the basement -- was taken to Summersville Regional Medical Center and then flown to Cabell-Huntington Hospital. He should recover and be OK, and then I had another firefighter who was attempting to get him and had a shoulder injury."
