A firefighter is in stable condition after falling off the roof of a home while battling a fire early Tuesday morning.

Phoenix Fire spokeswoman Reda Riddle-Bigler said crews were called to a reported house fire near 7th Avenue and Broadway Road before 4 a.m.

Firefighters arrived and found smoke and flames coming from the home, which appears to be vacant, she said.

One firefighter was on the roof, but fell off of it due to the hazy conditions from the smoke.

That firefighter is listed in stable condition, but was taken to the hospital to be checked out, she said. No other injuries were reported.
