DETROIT - Two Detroit firefighters were hurt Wednesday evening when debris from a building fell on them.

The firefighters were battling a two-alarm building fire at East Ferry Avenue and Chene Street when what appeared to be bricks fell from the top of the building.

A firefighter on a ladder and a firefighter that was standing under the ladder were hit.

They were taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital for injuries to their neck and back. One of them has a severe concussion and a broken ankle.

It took more than 35 firefighters to put out the flames -- and sources say the firefighters were also battling broken trucks and issues getting water.
