VIDEO - Two Franktown firefighters responding to a house fire in Sedalia rolled in their water truck Tuesday evening and were airlifted to area hospitals in critical condition, a spokesperson for South Metro Fire and Franktown Fire told 9NEWS.
Early Wednesday morning, Franktown Fire tweeted the condition of the two firefighters had improved.
Public information officer Kim Spuhler said the crash happened as the water truck was headed north on Perry Park and that no other vehicles were involved. Both firefighters had to be cut from the water truck after emergency crews arrived.
The pair was airlifted to Swedish Medical Center. Spuhler said both men would be facing "an uphill battle."
