Excerpts from the Northwest Herald:

The Huntley Fire Protection District transported one of its own employees to an area hospital for injuries sustained during a training activity, fire officials said Friday.

Huntley Fire Lt. Ken Larson confirmed it was a Huntley firefighter who was injured during a training activity. He would not specify how the patient was injured, but said any injuries were not life-threatening. The firefighter was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin. Given the intensity of some of the training, Larson said injuries do occur from time to time. The incident was accidental and will not require any sort of investigation, he added.
