 PHOENIX, AZ (KFDA) - Phoenix police and firefighters braved gunshots, flames and smoke as they responded to the northwest side of town on a house fire and shooting.

Details of the Tuesday morning shooting remain unclear, but authorities say at least two people were taken to hospitals with gunshot wounds and that the gunman also was shot. 

Police Sgt. Trent Crump says the victims' conditions aren't immediately available, and he says there could be additional victims inside the gutted home.

Firefighters put out the fire after it flared up a second time, with several standing on the roof as flames and smoke gushed out.

Police officers were shot at as they went into the house, some donning breathing apparatus to enter the burning home.

Crump says a 911 caller from the home described the shooting as a domestic situation.
