Two Boston FFs Fall Through Floor


Two firefighters were hurt as they tried to put out a building fire in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood early Wednesday, officials said.

At least one of the injured fire fighters was hurt after falling from the third floor to the second floor in the burning building at 26 Sigorney St.

He suffered face lacerations and a broken collarbone, fire officials said. A second firefighter suffered a back injury and a third suffered a shoulder injury. They were taken to Brigham & Women's Hospital.

Sixty firefighters responded to the blaze at the building when the call came in about 5:15 a.m.

The structure was undergoing construction renovations. Fire crews said temperatures outside were so low that water from their hoses was freezing.

There was no word immediate word on what sparked the fire but damages were estimated at $100,000.
