Two Riverside County firefighters received an electric shock Thursday about 4:00 p.m. Thursday while fighting a field fire near Hillside Street and Quebec Avenue that burned about six acres, several structures — including a mobile home and an attached garage, and four vehicles.
The injured firefighters were airlifted to a local hospital as a precaution and both are reported to be in stable condition with normal vital signs.
