Firefighters say there were two people inside the home, and one of them was flown to a Springfield, Missouri hospital with burns to over 25 percent of his body.

The second fire was also in Rogers. It was reported just after 5 a.m. at 1718 North Levi Lane.

Firefighters say a family safely escaped the blaze that started because of a fire in the fireplace on the left side of the home and spread to a wall, floor and crawlspace. 

According to firefighters, smoke detectors in the home alerted the parents and three children of the fire and all were able to get out. 

A crew of 18 firefighters worked to put out the flames.
