NORTHSIDE, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati firefighter suffered a minor injury while battling an overnight blaze, fire officials said.

Crews were called to a report of a house on fire in the 1600 block of Cooper Street at 11:10 p.m. Thursday, District 3 Fire Chief Michael Zimmerman wrote in a prepared statement.

When they arrived, they found a vacant home and an occupied residence next door on fire, he wrote. 

Fire crews searched both buildings and were able to extinguish the blaze in about 25 minutes.

A firefighter suffered a minor injury when he fell into a hole on the second floor, according to Zimmerman. The man was quickly removed, evacuated and taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Two adults from the occupied home are displaced, Zimmerman said. The American Red Cross is helping them.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Crews were on scene for more than two hours.

A damage estimate was not available, fire officials said early Friday.
