A firefighter was taken to the hospital after suffering a medical issue while fighting a house fire Wednesday. First responders performed CPR on him before he was rushed to the hospital.
Neighbors say they saw flames coming from the second floor of an old farmhouse on Scotland Road in Kingston, but the entire home turned into a fireball within minutes.
When the fire started just after 5 p.m. Wednesday, the fire department said at least four people were in the home. Kingston Assistant Fire Chief Ken Walker said the home had an apartment attached to it, but it was unclear exactly how many people lived in the home.
"We were just sitting at home eating dinner, and my daughter looked out the window and said, 'I think the neighbor's house is on fire,' and I said, 'Yeah, right.'" Felicia Cooke lives across from the farmhouse.

AT&T’s network went down for many of its customers across the United States Thursday morning, leaving customers unable to place calls, text or access the internet. By late morning, the company said most of its network had been restored.
The Federal Communications Commission confirmed Thursday afternoon that it is investigating the outage. The White House says federal agencies are in touch with AT&T about network outages, but that it doesn’t have all the answers yet on what exactly led to the interruptions.
Although Verizon and T-Mobile customers reported some network outages, too, they appeared far less widespread. T-Mobile and Verizon said their networks were unaffected by AT&T’s service outage and customers reporting outages may have been unable to reach customers who use AT&T.
Thursday morning, more than 74,000 AT&T customers reported outages on digital-service tracking site DownDetector, with service disruptions beginning around 4 am ET.
VIDEO: The Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department on Wednesday released an hour-long video showing dozens of firefighters battling a massive fire at the RISE Doro apartment complex downtown.
The $60 million apartment project is now being demolished after it was destroyed when a fire broke out last month.
The video begins when the fire starts late on a Sunday night and shows crews working until the sun comes up to put the fire out and keep the building from collapsing onto nearby businesses. In the video, JFRD features colorful radio traffic so you can hear exactly how they collaborated to attack the blaze.

PHOTOS: Located in the former Columbus Engine House No.16, the building was completed in 1908 and was built as the last engine house in the city to accommodate horse-drawn steam engines. The station closed in 1982 and after twenty years of fundraising and a $900,000 renovation, the museum moved into the building and opened to the public in 2002. Now, the beautifully restored engine house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the perfect place to showcase the history of Columbus' heroic firefighters.
Whether you're interested in fire safety, learning about the history of firefighting, or just looking for a unique museum to explore, the Central Ohio Fire Museum & Learning Center is an excellent community resource.
The museum houses a collection of antique firefighting equipment, including hand-pumped engines, horse-drawn wagons, and early motorized fire trucks.
