SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Sioux City firefighter is recovering after being overcome by heat and dehydration while fighting a house fire.

The firefighter was sent to Mercy Medical Center on Wednesday night.

He and other firefighters were battling a house fire in a single-story home reported around 8:30 p.m. The fire was extinguished with half-an-hour.

Assistant Fire Chief Robert Wilson says he is unsure how many people were inside the house when the fire broke out, but said no other injuries were reported.

Wilson says the house was heavily damaged by fire and smoke. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
