    Just checked some of the local rags here, and nothing reported.

    This is all I found from the Owen Sound Times (the localist of the rags):

    At least two firefighters injured in Meaford blaze

    Posted By Sun Media
    Posted 17 mins ago

    A fire in Meaford has sent at least two firefighters to hospital and possibly a third, according to news reports.

    The inferno, in a restaurant-liquor store in this town just west of Owen Sound, broke out around 6 a.m. and quickly spread, according to reports.

    The firefighters were inside the building on Nelson Street when the floor collapsed.
    Heartfelt prayers for those involved and wishes for a speedy recovery to all.

    From the "Secret List"
    Hey,

    2 Firefighters have been injured after they fell through the floor in a commercial building fire in Meaford, Ont.(Canada) around 0600 this morning. One of the Firefighters has very serious injuries. Initial reports indicated there was an additional firefighter missing but that was unfounded.


    Reports from the scene are that ambulances are standing by and Firefighters are operating from the exterior at this time. Meaford is north of Collingwood, east of Owen Sound. The Meaford and District FD has 24 Volunteer Firefighters.
    More to follow. Keep them in your prayers.

    UPDATED INFO - as of 10am local, two FF's appear to have been injured, one seriously; but the reports of a third being missing were inaccurate...

    One at Meaford Hospital; one has been transported to Owen Sound (a larger facility)

    FINALLY, a report in the Toronto Sun....

    Two firefighters injured in Meaford fire
    By ROB LAMBERTI, Sun Media

    Last Updated: 9th September 2009, 3:00pm

    MEAFORD - Two volunteer firefighters were injured trying to rescue the owners of a burning restaurant this morning.

    Investigators, including one from the Ontario Fire Marshal's office and an OPP forensics team, are trying to determine if the duo ran low on air in the 6 a.m. fire that gutted Reeds restaurant, owned by Jessie Reed, his brother Adam, and his mom.

    A rapid intervention team rushed in to rescue the firefighters.

    One, a 32-year-old was taken with critical injuries to Owen Sound hospital. Officials say the condition of the married father of young children is improving.

    The other firefighter, 33, who works at two part-time jobs and is also a father of a young child, suffered minor injuries and was taken to local hospital.

    Although firefighters believed the brothers were in the upper floor, the apartment was empty at the time.

    Residents are now concerned about the loss of the eatery they praised for both quality and its ability to attract visitors from afar.

    The family bought the restaurant about four years ago.

    Glad to hear the guys are ok.
