PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say two southern Arizona firefighters were injured when their fire engine blew a tire and rolled in Nevada while they were returning to Arizona from a fire assignment in California.

The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management said Wednesday the two firefighters from the Elephant Head Volunteer Fire Department based in Amado have been released from a Nevada hospital after being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The department said the two firefighters were the only ones riding in the engine when the wreck occurred Monday on U.S. 95 outside of Hawthorne, Nevada, which is 251 miles (404 kilometers) northwest of Las Vegas.

They were returning from the Carr Fire which has destroyed more than 1,000 homes and killed eight people.
