One firefighter was burned while responding to a fire that sent one other person to hospital near Tunney's Pasture overnight. 

A detached home at 227 Carleton Ave., just east of Island Park Drive, caught fire at around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.  Crews were called to the scene after the home's sole occupant reported seeing smoke, Ottawa Fire Services said in a media release. 

Paramedics sent the occupant to hospital, after he complained about inhaling smoke. 

Firefighters declared the fire under control at 3:21 a.m. and said they would continue "overhaul operations" at the home. 

The firefighter who was injured was sent to hospital with minor burns. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
