A firefighter is injured while battling a house fire, Tuesday night. 

The Muscatine Fire Department was called to a garage fire around 8:00 p.m. When crews arrived, they found a fire inside the garage, and smoke coming from the upstairs of the house. The fire spread to the second floor of the home in the 1100 block of Kansas Street.

During the initial attack, a firefighter was injured when a ceiling collapsed on him. 

The fire was under control in about an hour, but fire crews stayed until 11:15 p.m. to make sure the fire was fully put out. 

The home has about $50,000 in damage. The Red Cross is assisting the family.
