Utility worker shocked after fire

Posted: Updated:
FORT WORTH, Texas -

Fort Worth fire investigators are trying to find the cause of a two-alarm fire that left a utility worker injured.

Firefighters arrived just before 6 p.m. Monday to find flames and smoke pouring from the vacant complex in the city's hospital district.

The flames forced them to fight it from the outside, dumping water on it to eventually get it under control.

While crews were putting out hotspots, a utility worker trying to restore power in the area was shocked.

Emergency crews rushed him to the hospital and everyone else was ordered to stay away from the area.

No details about the man's condition were immediately released.
