Bedford County Department of Fire and Rescue crews were on the scene of a structure fire this morning.

Crews responded to Scenic View Road, near Stewartsville Road, for a report of a residential structure fire with entrapment around 11:40 a.m. 

The man, who has not been identified, was airlifted to the Wake Forest Burn Unit in North Carolina and is being treated for second and third degree burns. 

The man's daughter-in-law, who is a nurse and first no the scene, said he was working on a tractor when he cut a fuel line and it blew up, catching him and the garage on fire. 

This is a developing story.
