During the scuffle to remove their only source of heat; a pregnant woman was thrown to the ground, a man on crutches for 24 hours, minor injuries sustained and dozens of people complaining of chemical burns and respiratory problems after firemen unleased their extinguisher, at point blank range, into the faces of those surrounding the fire.
