Two Columbus firefighters are recovering after they suffered second-degree burns while battling a warehouse fire.
Reports say the injured firefighters were on a loading dock outside the burning warehouse late Friday when an explosion blew them backward.
Fire Chief Jeff Meyer says firefighter Chris Burris was treated for his burns at a Columbus hospital before being released.
The chief says firefighter David Smith remained at the Medical Center on Saturday.
He not only suffered second-degree burns but also was awaiting surgery for a broken ankle.
It took 25 firefighters nearly two hours to bring the fire under control at the former Burnham warehouse, a building that's about a century old.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
