(WHAS11) - WHAS11 News has learned of a fire on Lakeside Drive off Hwy. 62 near New Washington, Indiana.
According to authorities, the fire broke out on the roof. The homeowner got up on the roof to try to put it out but fell off onto the ground. WHAS11 News is told that he does not have serious injuries.
No firefighters were injured but they had a difficult time fighting the fire because the hydrant in front of the house was frozen. Firefighters had to shuttle water back and forth with tanker trucks.
Also, the house is an older home and had several additions with multiple roof layers which created more difficulty for firefighters.
