A firefighter was treated for minor injuries Friday after falling through the floor of a burning San Anselmo home, the Ross Valley Fire Department said.
The fire started in a bedroom on the upper level of the two-story home in the 60 block of Monterey Avenue, according to Battalion Chief Tim Grasser. It was first reported by a neighbor around 1:25 p.m.
The blaze burned a hole in the floor, and a firefighter who stepped near the hole fell part way through, Grasser said. The firefighter was taken to a hospital and treated for a shoulder injury, he said.
No residents were home when the fire broke out, according to Grasser.
Firefighters doused the blaze before it spread to other rooms in the house, Grasser said. The fire caused an estimated $75,000 in damage, he said.
“They made an aggressive attack on the fire, got it out really quickly, and got to work saving the contents of the house,” Grasser said.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
