An Anniston homeowner suffered injuries as the result of a house fire Friday, but the extent of those injuries was not clear Friday evening.

Anniston fire Chief Tony Taylor said firefighters at 2:18 p.m. Friday responded to a fire at a home on the corner of Walnut Avenue and 18th street.

Several fire trucks were still at the home at 5 p.m. Firefighters on a ladder truck pumped water into a large hole in the roof of the brick home.

Several people standing on a nearby sidewalk said they knew a woman lived there, but did not know her name.

Taylor said the homeowner was injured, but he had no other details as to her condition. Crews were expected to remain at the home until Friday evening, Taylor said, adding that he would have no other information on the fire until they returned.
