It's a hot day to be out there fighting fires.

Two firefighters with the Daisy Mountain Fire Department had to be treated for heat exhaustion Saturday after they battled a brush fire burning in Black Canyon City.

The burning brush sparked a fire in one home in the area.

Fire crews say the home was occupied at the time, but everyone inside made it out safely.

Several pets were also rescued.

A pair of firefighters had to be transported to the hospital with minor injuries due to heat exhaustion.

They have since been released.

The fire is now in the mop-up stage.
