ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Two firefighters have been injured after a wall collapsed on them at the scene of a Rock Hill house fire.

Officials tell local media outlets that the firefighters were working to put out the fire Monday afternoon when the wall fell on them. Neighbors reported hearing an explosion, and authorities are still working to figure out exactly what happened.

One person who was home when the fire began wasn’t hurt. He told the Herald of Rock Hill that he runs a petroleum maintenance business in the garage and heard a cracking noise there.

Authorities including the State Law Enforcement Division and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating the fire. The firefighters were taken to the hospital for their injuries, and their names have not been released.
