Steelers Vs. Broncos, NFL Playoffs 2012: Pittsburgh RB Coach Burned In House Fire

According to a report by Pittsburgh's Channel 11 News, Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson was badly burned in a house fire early Friday morning. Here are the details:

"About 2:45 a.m., I was awoken by a number of pounding on doors,” said neighbor David Sebesta. “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."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

According to the report, Wilson, 50, was flown to the nearest Pittsburgh hospital, but the status of his condition is not yet known.

The Steelers are preparing for their first-round playoff game at the Denver Broncos Sunday (2:30 MT on CBS).
