COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Four Columbus firefighters have suffered minor injuries after a ladder fell on them during a fire at a business in downtown Columbus.
Authorities tell The Columbus Dispatch that two firefighters were checked at a hospital but that their injuries aren’t severe. Two others were treated at the scene.
Firefighters were called to the business, at E. Gay and High Streets, which houses a bakery, shortly after 6:00 p.m. Tuesday for a fire that is believed to have started in the basement.
A ladder that had been against the side of the building was blown over by wind, striking the firefighters.
