WILMINGTON, Del. - Two firefighters suffered minor injuries while battling a two-alarm blaze at a light center in downtown Wilmington.
    
The fire at Gross' Lighting Center was reported about 11:40 a.m. Thursday. Smoke blanketed part of the city.
    
Nearly 70 firefighters and emergency personnel responded to the blaze, which was brought under control about 2 p.m.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Wilmington officials say Gross' Lighting Center was condemned in June 2012 because of numerous building code violations.
