In Trenton, Ontario two firefighters ran into a burning strip club searching for a woman believed trapped and ended up needing rescue themselves. Both firefighters were injured (another report says neither firefighter was hurt) and were brought out by a rapid intervention team. The fire was reported around 9:30 this morning. As you will see in the video above (at :43), the building collapsed about 90 minutes after firefighters arrived.
The three-story Sherwood Forest Inn collapsed just after 11 a.m. A series of explosions kept firefighters back and sent chunks of the building crashing onto several streets.
Two firefighters who ran into the building to find a woman believed to have been trapped on the third floor were later pulled out by fellow firefighters.
After the firefighters were rescued, officials interviewed residents of the building to try to determine if there really was a woman trapped inside the building.
Police later located the woman in question, safe and sound.
