PHOENIX — A Glendale police officer was injured during an incident with a man Tuesday evening while responding to a house fire, authorities said.

The officer was injured while trying to get the knife from the man, authorities said, and was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The man was also transported with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities are conducting an investigation.
