    Crews remain at the scene of a destructive structure fire in Taunton, Massachusetts, where a firefighter was injured and one man was rescued by ladder.

    Firefighters were battling hot spots Wednesday morning after getting the three-alarm fire under control. The blaze was reported sometime before 8:20 p.m. Tuesday at a multi-family home on Harrison Street.

    Flames tore through the 2.5-story wood-frame home that housed six units. The blaze caused the roof to collapse, according to firefighters.

    Authorities were able to rescue a man from a second-floor balcony by using a ladder. He was alert and conscious at the time of his rescue and did not require medical attention. One firefighter was treated at the scene for a heat-related issue.
