A firefighter was rescued after becoming trapped in a roof collapsed during a single home fire in Woodbury Sunday afternoon.
Fire officials say firefighters responded to the call on Ridgewood Road around 2:30 p.m.

Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Janet Morgan said the firefighter was rescued within 20 minutes and crews were able to contain the blaze.
