COLDWATER TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- A Branch County Firefighter is nursing bumps and bruises after he was struck by pieces of a collapsing ceiling in a burning home north of Coldwater early on Christmas Day.

Firefighters were dispatched to the home on Whispering Lane in Coldwater Township at about 6:30 Christmas morning.

Firefighters were able to save the home, but it has suffered extensive damage, particularly the garage where three cars were stored, and they believe the fire began.

The firefighter who was injured refused immediate treatment and continued to battle the blaze.All the occupants escaped without injury. They have yet to determine the cause.
