A Cincinnati firefighter went to a hospital from a Northside fire Tuesday morning, fire officials said.

The firefighter suffered from a medical condition, was treated and released, said District 3 Fire Chief Thomas Parker.

Crews responded to reports of flames showing from a three-story, single family building in the 4100 block of Witler Street near Blue Rock Road just before 7 a.m.

They found fire on the second and third floors extending into the attic when they arrived, Parker said.

Firefighters knocked the bulk of the blaze down in about a half hour.

They remained on scene overhauling the building and investigating the cause.

Damage was set at $50,000.

The cause remains undetermined, Parker said.
