When the two entered the house, they found a couch on fire in the step-down family room. As they were fighting the fire, they ran out of water in the pump and fire conditions began to worsen. At that time, Employee #1 was not wearing proper PPE and sustained severe smoke inhalation and first and second degree burns to his head, face and neck, as well as third degree burns to his hands. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he was hospitalized for treatment.
