VIDEO: Burning building collapses on firefighter in Texas – WATCH

A Dallas firefighter battling a fire outside a burning building Friday morning crawled to safety though burning debris after part of the roof suddenly toppled over and fell on top of him, authorities say.

Firefighters with Dallas Fire-Rescue were called to a fire at a vacant commercial building on the 2600 block of Walnut Hill Lane just before 2 a.m. When they arrived, they reported seeing flames and heavy smoke shooting through the roof.

Using hand lines and ladder pipes, firefighters worked quickly to try to get a handle on the growing fire.
