SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Authorities say a veteran Sacramento firefighter is hospitalized with a serious back injury after falling from a roof of a home while battling a fire.
A Sacramento Fire Department spokesman says Capt. Gene Dibble suffered a fracture to his lower spine in the fall around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Dibble has been with the department for 24 years.
