CLE ELUM, Wash. (AP) — Fire commanders say a firefighter is recovering at home for a few days after suffering minor facial burns Wednesday at the Taylor Bridge Fire in central Washington.

Fire officials said in a statement Thursday that members of an engine crew attempted to leave an area where a tree had torched with flames, but found their vehicle wouldn’t start.

The firefighter was injured while evacuating on foot, evaluated at the scene and transported to Kittitas Valley Community Hospital, where the firefighter was treated and released.

The name and unit of the firefighter were not released.

The remaining engine crew members are working at the fire.
