NFL

Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson was badly burned in a house fire early Friday morning, according to WPXI.com.

Wilson, 50, was flown to a Pittsburgh-area hospital but there is no word on his condition.

“About 2:45 a.m., I was awoken by a number of pounding on doors,” neighbor David Sebesta told WPXI.com. “Looked out my window, and there was policemen, about five or six, going down this row of houses, waking people up. I could smell burning. Fire trucks came and pulled a man out, looked like he was pretty badly burned, and carted him off to a hospital.”

Wilson is in his fifth season with the Steelers.
