KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say two firefighters were taken to a hospital with minor injuries after a roof collapsed as they battled a fire in a Kansas City home.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2hG3IwT ) reports that a third firefighter was treated at the scene Friday morning. The firefighters were in the final stages of putting out the fire when the roof of the two-story house gave way.

Kansas City Fire Department spokesman James Garrett says a team rushed into the structure and retrieved the firefighters within three minutes.

No one was in the home at the time of the fire, but it appeared that the home was occupied.
