2 NO, LA FFs INJURED AT FIRE

     

Friday, November 23, 2012 Two New Orleans firefighters were injured early Friday morning when a blazing two-story St. Claude duplex collapsed into the street where they were standing. Both firefighters were treated and released by Friday afternoon, said Capt. Edwin Holmes Jr., a spokesman for the New Orleans Fire Department.


One of the firefighters was burned on his foot, right shoulder and lower back; the other was burned on his left hand and the right side of his face, Holmes said.

The two men were among 45 firefighters dispatched to a two-alarm fire that engulfed two duplexes on the corner of Marais and Congress streets. The fire -- which originated at 3601-3603 Marais St. before spreading to 1200-1202 Congress St. -- was first reported at 5:36 a.m., Holmes said.

All four dwellings were vacant at the time of the fire, Holmes said.

The house at 3601-3603 Marais St. collapsed, sending flaming materials into the street where firefighters were standing.

The fire was reported under control at 6:28 a.m., Holmes said.

Holmes said there was no word on the possible cause of the fire, or any estimates of the potential cost of the fire's damage.
