WINONA, Minnesota (WXOW) -- Only one injury between three firefighters who fell through the roof of a home that caught fire Monday night in Winona.

The fire broke out at about 8 p.m. Monday on the 700 block of West King Street in Winona.

Fire officials say after the fire was out, 3 assisting Goodview firefighters were helping with cleanup overhaul, when the roof they were standing on collapsed.

One of the firefighters ended up going to the hospital with an ankle injury.

The Winona Fire Department said the home, split into three apartments, is likely a total loss. 

Everyone who was home at the time of the fire made it out safely according to the department.

It's still not clear what caused the fire.
