HOLLY LAKE RANCH, TX (KLTV) -

A firefighter was flown to a hospital in Tyler with a hand injury that he sustained while fighting a structure fire on Monday.

Shortly before noon, fire crews responded to a chimney fire inside Holly Lake Ranch on Holly Trail. The fire then spread to the attic.

The firefighter suffered a severe cut on his hand and, while the wound was being treated, he began having heart trouble, so he was airlifted to Tyler.
