Fire officials in Tennessee say four firefighters were treated after battling a blaze at a furniture store in Memphis.

Memphis fire spokesman Lt. Wayne Cooke says in a news release the fire was brought under control about an hour after it was reported Saturday.

Cooke says the one-story building had no sprinkler system or working smoke alarm.

The statement says two firefighters were transported to a hospital with heat exhaustion, another with an eye injury and one with a hand injury.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
