The fire was reported about 2:15 a.m. in the 1500 block of Welldow Lane.

The blaze apparently began in the kitchen but had spread to the second floor when firefighters arrived and flames were shooting out of a window, video from the scene showed.

A firefighter fell about 10 feet off a ladder while battling the blaze and was taken to University of California, Irvine Medical Center, said Fullerton Fire Department Battalion Chief John Stokes.

No other injuries were reported in the fire.
