EAST MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Two Memphis firefighters were injured Tuesday evening while battling a house fire in the 3500 block of Kirby Parkway in the Hickory Hill neighborhood of East Memphis.

Both firefighters were taken to Baptist East Hospital and are listed in stable condition, Memphis Fire spokesman Lt. Wayne Cooke said. One firefighter suffered a head injury while the other firefighter is being treated for a neck and back injury.

Fire officials said the house fire originated in the fireplace at around 5 p.m. Residents inside the home at the time of the fire were able to escape without injury, Lt. Cooke said.

Firefighters were able to get the house fire under control at around 6 p.m.

The intensity of the fire caused debris to fall around the chimney fireplace.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
