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.

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.
