PENBROOK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Penbrook police said three people were taken to the hospital Sunday afternoon, one with severe burns, after fire ripped through their basement.

It happened at around 4:00 p.m. at a home on the 2800-block of Penbrook Avenue.

Investigators said the homeowner was working on a furnace in his basement when the flames broke out. He suffered severe injuries and was flown to Lehigh Burn Center in Allentown.

Two other residents who rescued him sustained minor burns, and were transported to Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

The fire marshal ruled the blaze accidental. The fire was contained to the basement, but officials said the home is not livable at this time.
