BUFFALO, N.Y.- Four Buffalo firefighters were injured while battling a two-alarm fire on Maurice Street Monday night.
The extent of the injuries to the firefighters is unknown. They were taken to ECMC after the building started collapsing and were inside when that happened.
Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell Whitfield says two of the firefighters went to the hospital right away, the other two stayed on duty for a while longer.
No one was inside the house when firefighters got there.
In addition to smoke and flames, firefighters also had to contend with subzero temperatures. In fact, it was so cold that two 2 On Your Side cameras froze while recording the fire. Whitfield called conditions horrendous and said water lines were freezing. He says crews also had to deal with a frozen hydrant, and firefighters had to walk through a foot of water in front of the building.
