      NEW YORK (WABC) -- Two firefighters were hurt battling flames inside a church on the Upper East Side overnight Friday.
      The second-alarm fire broke out inside the St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church on East 97th Street just after midnight.
       
      Twenty-five units and more than 100 firefighters were called to the scene.
       
      The fire was contained to the basement of the seven-story structure, and it took a little more than two hours to get the situation under control.
       
      The firefighters were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
