Two firefighters were evaluated for injuries after a ceiling collapsed during an early morning fire in Greece.

The North Greece Fire District tells News10NBC the fire started at a residence on Whisper Creek Court around 7:20 a.m.

When crews arrived on scene, they found an addition that was being built at that residence was on fire. Firefighters say during the course of combating the blaze, the ceiling in that addition collapsed and two firefighters were treated for injuries. Officials say one firefighter was evaluated for a neck injury, but neither suffered any major injuries.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. Officials say the fire was contained to the addition and residents were able to return to their home.
