Two Detroit firefighters fell through the floor of a burning two-story home Friday near the corner of Puritan and Blackstone streets on the city's west side.

The stairwell had given out underneath the firefighters. Both firefighters refused any EMS help and continued fighting the fire at the home.

The fire destroyed the home. No residents were there at the time of the fire.
