(INDIANAPOLIS) - One firefighter was hurt battling a house fire near downtown early Friday.

The fire was reported at a vacant house just before 3:30 a.m. in the 1500 block of Columbia Avenue, a few blocks east of 16th Street and College Avenue.

Indianapolis Fire Department Lt. Larry Tracy said the flames were so intense, firefighters had to use a defensive attack to douse the flames.

Tracy says when firefighters arrived the home was engulfed in flames and they were shooting out the roof.

The injured firefighter was rushed to the IU Methodist Hospital in good condition.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
