Two Lexington firefighters were injured Saturday while fighting a blaze on Stonecase Drive near the intersection of Man o' War Boulevard and Todds Road. Both were treated and released from the University of Kentucky Hospital.

Major C.J. Haunz said Harry Gilbert suffered some burns on his neck and was bruised after tumbling down steps. Tony Johnston suffered first-degree burns on his face.

The injuries occurred after 3 p.m. at a fire involving two houses, Haunz said. No resident was injured, he said.
