The police officers are most likely suffering from smoke inhalation and heat exhaustion. LVFR spokesperson Tim Szymanski says the police officers did a commendable job getting people out of the building before they arrived.
Three people were also injured during a house fire in the downtown area. LVFR believes that fire may have been cooking related.
Both fires are under investigation.
