A man was injured early Friday morning after a fire engulfed his northeast Coweta home and trapped him inside, authorities said.

According to Deputy Chief Todd Moore with the Coweta County Fire Department, firefighters responded to 18 Rollingwood Trail, off Fischer Road, around 12:08 a.m. in reference to a structure fire with possible entrapment. Crews from Stations 3, 7 and 12 responded, attacked the fire and rescued the unconscious man from inside.

The victim was transported to Piedmont Newnan Hospital by ambulance, and was later flown to the Atlanta Medical Center via helicopter, Moore said. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
