Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV )

We now know the name of the firefighter hurt yesterday in Twin Falls.
Captain Tim Lauda is still in the hospital with a knee injury.
At around 5, fire crews responded to the free will Baptist church on Washington Street South.
A church volunteer was burning weeds in the parking lot, when a bush next to the church caught fire, damaging the building.
Firefighters were checking the attic of the church, searching for more signs of fire when Lauda was hurt.
Twin Falls City Spokesperson Josh Palmer says, "What we know now is that he fell through some ceiling tiles while trying to check that area. We don't believe his injuries are life threatening or very severe... but he is being evaluated right now at Magic Valley Hospital."
We're told he is in good condition and is resting comfortably.
