FOUR FIREFIGHTERS HOSPITALISED AFTER TANKER ROLLOVER

Four firefighters have been injured after their tanker rolled while they were battling a blaze on the mid north coast.

Crews were working to contain a grass fire at Caparra near Taree last night when the truck rolled down a hill.

All four men were taken to hospital.

Two of them, aged 54 and 20, have since been discharged.

A 62-year-old man is in a stable condition and is expected to be released within the coming days.

While a 71-year-old man has been taken into surgery for an injury to his hand.

Fire and Rescue NSW has wished the men a speedy recovery.
