CLEVELAND -- Firefighters responded to a large apartment building fire on the city's east side.

Firefighters were dispatched to East 130th Street and Buckeye Avenue about 8:30 p.m. Friday.

According to the Fire Department, the fire is a triple two-alarm fire.

Reports from the scene are that two firefighters were injured when a ceiling fell on them. 

They were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center with noncritical injuries.

According to firefighters, the fire started in an unoccupied section of the building between the first and second floor. It then spread through the third floor to the roof.

The building has a firewall, so the fire was confined to the eastern side of the building.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Firefighters weren't sure how many people were displaced but said the Red Cross is helping out residents.
