Four firefighters are recovering today after battling a two-alarm fire in the City of Newburgh.
The city's seven firefighters on duty initially responded to the call at 87 City Terrace early Sunday morning.
Officials say flames were seen coming out of the second-floor windows. The blaze eventually required 30 firefighters to knock down.
Two of the injured firefighters had to be hospitalized after falling, one of them down a flight of stairs and the other on an icy surface outside. They were expected to return to work by Tuesday at the latest.
