      2 Flint firefighters suffer minor injuries battling vacant house fires

      Flint firefighters battle two vacant home fires in the city Wednesday morning.

      The Flint Fire Department is investigating after two vacant homes burned to the ground early Wednesday morning.

      Firefighters responded to the first fire at a vacant home on East Lindsay Boulevard, off South Saginaw Street, just after midnight.

      Crews worked quickly to douse the flames, but not before the fire damaged the occupied home next door.

      About 30 minutes after the fire on East Lindsay was called in, crews responded to another fire on Adams Avenue, which is just off Martin Luther King Avenue.

      Firefighters were able to put out the fire at the vacant home on Adams. The home next door was also damaged at this fire.

      According to Acting Battalion Chief Steve Cobb, two firefighters suffered minor injuries while fighting the two fires.

      The cause of both of fires remains under investigation.
