A firefighter was hurt early Tuesday morning while trying to put out a fire at a home in east Bakersfield.
It happened just after midnight on Gage Street near Dolores Street.
Firefighters tell us a family of five woke up to the smell of smoke and found the back of their house in flames. The family was able to get out safely, but fire officials say a firefighter was shocked by some electrical wires.
The firefighter’s injuries are said to be minor.
There’s no word on how the fire started.
