TUCSON - Four Tucson firefighters have been taken to the hospital as a precaution this afternoon, after complaining of nausea after responding to a fire alarm.
At around 10:30 a.m., Tucson Fire Department responded to a fire alarm at a building downtown, at 32 N Stone.
Upon arrival, fire personnel were able to confirm smoke in the basement of the building, according to a TFD spokesperson. After further investigation, the firefighters began to exhibit some symptoms related to possible hazardous material exposure.
The building was then evacuated, and Hazarous Materials was called.
Right now Tucson Fire is trying to determine the cause of the problem.
