    Firefighters battled a fire at a home in the 1000 block of Pheasant Ridge Drive in Grapevine Thursday afternoon.

    Chopper 5 could see flames jumping from the roof as firefighters doused the fire with water from a ladder truck and in a ground attack.

    NBC 5 crews heading to the scene said they could see smoke from several miles away.

    A firefighter was injured while battling the flames. Grapevine Fire Chief Steve Bass said he fell off the roof, he was taken to the hospital but NBC 5 was told his injuries are not serious and he'll be "just fine."

    Firefighters from several neighboring cities, including Bedford, are helping fight the fire.

    Approximately 20 engines and 65 firefighters were called out because the fire was so intense according to Chief Bass.

    Crews doused two nearby homes with water because they were in danger because of the heavy flames.

    No word what sparked the fire and Bass said firefighters haven't had a chance to do an  initial search inside the home.

    As of 5:45 p.m. the majority of the fire had been knocked down according to Chief Bass.
