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, sending pieces of the structure down upon firefighters who were outside the structure.

At least one firefighter was able to walk away from the rubble, news outlets reported, and all three were taken to UAB Hospital for treatment of what a fire official described as minor injuries.

The house that caught fire was being renovated and no one was inside at the time. The cause of the blaze wasn’t immediately known.
