A Jefferson Parish firefighter is recovering from serious injuries suffered while fighting an apartment fire in Metairie over the weekend that displaced close to 100 residents.

He's been identified as Dan Ziegler who fell through the roof while battling the blaze Saturday. Officials say he was taken to University Medical Center for treatment of second and third-degree burns.

A fireman that helped rescue Ziegler from the flames was treated for burns to his fingers.

FOX 8 reports that a GoFundMe page for Ziegler has reached $27,000 in donations.
