NEWARK, NJ – Two firefighters sustained burn injuries while they were battling a house fire in Newark last night, according to the Essex Daily Voice.
The incident began at 29 Leslie Street at around 11:40 p.m., when a vacant home caught fire.
Before emergency officials could get the two-alarm fire under control, one part of the structure caved in.
One firefighter sustained burn injuries to his neck and arms, while another received burns to his neck, face, and arms. The firefighters, who have yet to be publicly identified, were brought to the hospital in non-critical condition.
The fire remains under investigation at this time.
