“Authorities say two firefighters were injured battling a blaze that left a two-building complex partially collapsed in downtown Burlington.The fire was reported a little before 11 p.m. Saturday. Fire departments and emergency medical teams from three southeast Iowa counties and all off-duty Burlington firefighters eventually responded to the city’s calls for help. Aerial trucks shot water down from above, while ground crews attacked flames from various angles.
Burlington Fire Chief Matt Trexel says the two firefighters were taken to a hospital. One was treated for a back injury and one for smoke inhalation. Trexel says both returned to the fire scene.The fire cause is being investigated. Developer Doug Wells had been redeveloping the complex to hold ground-floor businesses and upper-floor apartments.“
