One firefighter was sent to a local hospital as crews battled a fire in Hopkins County Tuesday evening.
Manitou Fire Department reported that they responded to a fire in the 3400 block of Rose Creek Road, which is west of Madisonville around 3:30 p.m.
When crews arrived, they saw a large workshop had a fire inside. Manitou and five other departments dealt with the fire for hours when the injury occurred.
The firefighter has already been released from the hospital.
By 10:00 p.m., the scene was cleared. However, crews returned to the scene an hour later as the fire had rekindled inside the structure. Crews were able to clear the scene again but, received another call at 3:30 a.m. that the fire had rekindled a second time.
By 6:30 a.m., fire crews remained at the scene. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
