3 FIREFIGHTERS INJURED BATTLING HOUSE FIRE IN BIRMINGHAM

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Three firefighters were injured in the partial collapse of a building that was on fire in Birmingham.

Crews were battling a house fire on Tuesday night when part of the roof gave way. News outlets report that pieces of the structure fell on the firefighters.

At least one firefighter was able to walk away from the rubble, and all three were taken to UAB Hospital for treatment.

A fire department official says all the injuries were minor. The house that caught fire was being renovated, and no one was inside at the time.
