4 Firefighters Injured in Toronto (Canada) Fire

Four firefighters were injured fighting a six-alarm fire in downtown Toronto. From CTV.ca news:
Four firefighters have been injured while fighting a massive blaze near the Ryerson University Campus in downtown Toronto on Monday morning.
Emergency crews were sent to battle the six-alarm fire just after 4 a.m. at the site near Yonge and Dundas Streets, one of Toronto's busiest downtown intersections.

As many as 32 trucks and 125 firefighters were called to the scene early Monday morning. Five aerial towers were used to shoot water cannons down on the blaze.
...
Fire officials sent out a mayday alert shortly after 5:30 a.m. when two firefighters slipped from the roof of a neighbouring building and fell into the blaze.

A rapid extraction team pulled the men from the fire and they were rushed to hospital.
