WEBSTER, N.Y. - Authorities say a firefighter has been shot while responding to a house fire in western New York.

Officials in the town of Webster tell local media outlets that someone shot at firefighters around 6 a.m. Monday when they arrived at the scene of the blaze just east of Rochester.

A fire official with the West Webster Fire District tells the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester that the firefighter is listed in satisfactory condition at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Officials say the fire spread to a second home. A man answering the phone at the fire station said firefighters are unable to battle the blazes as long as the area hasn't been secured by police. The man said no other information was being released.
