HELENA, Mont. — A firefighter was injured after ammunition exploded during a mobile home fire.

Flathead Beacon reported that nine firefighters responded to a chimney fire and had to take cover for around 30 minutes when a supply of ammunition exploded inside the home.

One firefighter was hiding behind one of the pumper trucks when his wrist was hit by ammunition, and Lincoln Volunteer Fire Chief Zach Muse said he was unsure of the extent of the injury.

The explosion caused damage to some of the trucks as well.
