On Long Island: a home was badly damaged from a fire. Fire departments from five towns rushed to the scene when flames broke out at the home on Blacksmith Road in Levittown last night.

The homeowner tried to extinguish the fire with a garden hose. He suffered from smoke inhalation and had to be treated at the hospital.

Three firemen were also treated for smoke inhalation.

Investigators are still looking into what caused the fire. But they don't think it's suspicious.
