HOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say two firefighters were in stable condition after being injured while working to put out a barn fire in Livingston County.

The Howell Area Fire Department and other area crews responded Monday to the fire in Howell Township, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit.

No one was inside the barn at the time of the fire. Authorities say one firefighter fell from a ladder onto another firefighter, injuring them both. WHMI-FM reports one had back and rib injuries and the other had a leg injury, but they're expected to recover.

The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports firefighters had to cut holes into the sides of the barn as they worked to extinguish the blaze.
