Va. Blaze Injures Six Firefighters
BLACKSTONE, Va. - Six firefighters were injured in a blaze that destroyed two buildings and knocked out telephone service Thursday in this southern Virginia town.
The fire was brought under control after three and a-half hours. Three of the firefighters were treated at a hospital and released.
The fire started in an alley behind a restaurant and destroyed the eatery and a fitness center.
Nore than 150 firefighters from 10 counties responded to the fire, which included a backdraft explosion.
"It was very violent, pandemonium. It was very disorganized for a few minutes," said Fire Chief Mac Osborne, who was standing in front of the restaurant and witnessed the explosion.
