DOVER, Del.- Authorities say a Dover firefighter is in good condition after sustaining second-degree burns while fighting a house fire.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office said the Dover Fire Department responded to the fire on the 2400 block of Kenton Road just before midnight Sunday after getting 911 calls. Flames were shooting out of the house by the time they arrived. Dover firefighters, along with several neighboring fire companies, extinguished the flames.

Two children and an adult living in the house were able to escape and are getting help from the American Red Cross.

The injured firefighter was transported to the Crozer Medical Center in Upland, Pa., for treatment. He was listed in good condition Monday.

Heavy fire damage was estimated at $50,000. Officials said that according to the occupants, smoke alarms were present inside the home but did not go off. The fire remains under investigation.
