Wellston, MO (KSDK)- A firefighter was slightly injured overnight while in the line of duty.

The first fire was at a structure in the 6400 block of Ridge Avenue. It's believed the first fire is where the firefighter initially hurt himself.
Not long after the first call, the firefighter was at a second fire scene at a home in the 6200 block of Lenox where the firefighter gave him further discomfort and he was transported to a local hospital.
Authorities say the fireman was treated and released a short time later.
While there was no immediate indication the two fires were suspicious, the St. Louis County Bomb and Arson investigators were called to seek a cause for the fires.
