WEST PARK (CBS4) – A Broward Sheriff’s Fire Rescue firefighter was transported to the hospital after suffering from chest pains while fighting a house fire in West Park.

Broward Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Mike Jachles says a passerby reported a home on fire at 42 Sutton Road in West Park just before 5 p.m. Monday. The home was vacant and boarded up at the time.

During the course of fighting the blaze, a firefighter reported having chest pains and was immediately transported to Memorial Regional Hospital to be checked out. He is said to be in stable condition.
