Firefighters from the Henrietta, Jolly, Bellevue and Petrolia Volunteer Fire Departments responded to a major house fire in Henrietta Saturday evening.

The fire broke out in an old, two-story home in the 100 block of S. Hancock St. around 5:30 p.m.

The flames were so big firefighters doused neighboring properties with water and trucks from the electric yard next door had to be moved.

Henrietta Mayor Tom Griffin said there were several people home at the time, but everyone made it out safe. One person suffered from minor singes.

One firefighter was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Griffin said he suffered from severe cramping.

There was no word on a cause for the fire. The house was completely burned.
