SHARE

A firefighter caught fire while battling a blaze in Linden, Pennsylvania Tuesday.

Fox 13 reports a witness to the blaze later posted a video to Instagram showing the firefighter standing on roof while fighting the fire in the second story of a structure.

As the firefighter uses a rod to knock down part of the building, a large ember lands on the back of his head.

Another person can be heard yelling telling the firefighter he’s on fire.

John Wren, who took the video, said on his Instagram post the flames on the firefighter were quickly extinguished.

Lower Chichester Volunteer Fire Company reported they encountered heavy smoke while fighting the fire, according to Fox 13.

Wren said in his post the building was empty, and commenters on the fire department’s Facebook page said it was once a daycare facility.
