Steelers RB Coach Kirby Wilson Badly Burned In House Fire

Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson was badly burned in a house fire early Friday morning, according to

Wilson, 50, was flown to a Pittsburgh-area hospital but there is no word on his condition.

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

Wilson is in his fifth season with the Steelers.
