Three Cal Fire firefighters have been injured after being hit by a falling tree during a grass fire in Santa Cruz County early Sunday morning.

The firefighters were treated at the fire and then taken to a local hospital.

Officials say all three of them are in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

Officials say they were able to stop the fire at less than two acres and is currently 50-percent contained.
