Two firefighters suffered minor injuries when they fell through the floor of a burning house in Dover and landed in the basement.
According to Dover Fire Chief Eric Hagman, crews were dispatched at around 1:30 Wednesday afternoon to a house fire at 28 Quail Drive.
Hagman said the fire was called in by a neighbor.
Arriving firefighters saw what looked like a basement fire, Hagman said.
The first crews that entered checked the heavy hardwood floor and it appeared to be structurally sound, but wasn’t, Hagman said. The two firefighters then dropped through the floor and into the basement. They were taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
