PHOENIX — Three firefighters suffered minor injuries while fighting a house fire in Glendale late Monday, authorities said.

Glendale and Phoenix firefighters responded to reports of fire and smoke near 45th Avenue and Echo Lane around 11:25 p.m., authorities said in a Facebook post.

Upon arrival, there were large amounts of heat and smoke within the home requiring a ladder crew to cut holes in the roof to allow a search for the source of the fire.

After putting out the fire, three firefighters said they sustained minor burns and were all taken to a hospital for treatment. The were later released and were recovering at home.

Fire personnel evaluated the woman who lived there for smoke inhalation but she refused hospital treatment.

The resident and her three pets were displaced.

Initial reports suggest the woman was cooking and stepped away for a couple of minutes. When she returned the kitchen was on fire, authorities said.

We want to hear from you.
