PRINCETON (WVVA) - Firefighters from East River and Princeton responded to the scene of a house fire on Union Drive in the Lilly Grove area of Princeton Tuesday afternoon.

East River Fire Chief Nelson Short at the scene tells WVVA one woman was inside the home at the time of the fire. She escaped unharmed.

Short said a firefighter from the Princeton department was injured while battling the blaze after a piece of ceiling fell on him. His injuries are not said to be serious, according to Short.

Short said the fire may have been caused by a burning brush pile outside the home, but the official cause is still under investigation.

The Princeton Rescue Squad also responded to the scene.
