LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say two firefighters have been injured when a ceiling collapsed on them as they battled a fire at home in the Studio City area of Los Angeles.

Fire spokeswoman Katherine Main says the firefighters hit by debris and drywall when a part of the ceiling came down Monday afternoon. She says they complained of neck and back pain but their injuries aren’t considering life-threatening.

Crews were called to a two-story hillside home at around 1:15 p.m. and battled a fire the engulfed the roof and attic.

Main says gusty winds drove the flames and it took nearly 50 firefighters more than a half-hour to knock them down.

Main says some roofing was being done at the home but the cause of the fire was under investigation.
