ALEXANDRIA — Two central Indiana firefighters suffered injuries early Monday when a ceiling collapsed on them in a residential fire, a fire chief said.

One of the Alexandria firefighters suffered a head injury, a concussion and back pain, Fire Chief Brian Cuneo said. The other suffered an arm injury. Both were released after medical treatment.

The fire was reported at an unoccupied home shortly after midnight and flames were coming from the rear of the structure when firefighters arrived, The Herald Bulletin reported.

The home was being remodeled but was considered a total loss, Cuneo said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
