Five firefighters have been treated for injuries they received fighting a fire in a downtown Des Moines building.
Officials say the firefighters’ injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The fire was reported shortly after 12 a.m. Saturday in the 19-story Equitable Building.
Fire Chief John TeKippe said that two firefighters were hurt by falling debris, one fell off an 8-foot ladder and two others were treated for heat-related issues.
No other injuries have been reported.
Officials say the fire was contained in a crawl space with electrical wiring and ductwork on the second floor, where most of the damage occurred. Some upper floors received smoke damage.
