OMAHA, Neb. (AP)

        Authorities say two volunteer firefighters were injured when their firetruck rolled on the way to a blaze.
        The accident occurred around 5 p.m. Sunday in northwest Omaha. Waterloo Fire Chief Travis Harlow says water sloshing in the back of the truck may have given it momentum to roll as it turned a corner. The truck was headed to a fire at the Douglas County landfill.        

        The two firefighters were taken to Creighton University Medical Center-Bergan Mercy for treatment. Their names haven't been released.
