We rarely see how brave our first responders are. This is the fire on Walnut Hill Friday morning. I didn't even realize what I was seeing until later. #firefighterbravery @DFWscanner pic.twitter.com/ARGHpxJ7BZ

A Dallas, Texas firefighter is recovering from injuries received this (Friday) morning after part of a burning commercial building collapsed on top of him.
A Dallas police officer first spotted the heavy smoke coming from a vacant commercial building off Walnut Hill Lane near Interstate 35E around 1:45 a.m.
Since the building was unstable, firefighters decided to battle the flames from the outside, spraying water from above.
One firefighter was hit by falling debris and taken to the hospital.
Dallas Fire-Rescue said he has burns and back injuries but is expected to be okay.
