    Two Philly firefighters killed

    The four were trapped when a wall and part of the roof of the furniture store collapsed about 5:50 a.m., a little more than a half-hour after the warehouse fire had been declared under control, officials said.

    Killed were Lt. Robert Neary, 60, and firefighter Daniel Sweeney, both from Ladder 10, Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers said.

    Tragic and it goes to show absolutely nothing in that line of work is routine...

    RIP...

    Is that why you made this thread, to exploit their deaths for political fodder and trolling?

    I think he was trying to make the point that not all public employees have such a cushy life. Like teachers.

    RIP.

    To show that there is a world outside of LI, a reality I see everyday. 2 brave men died putting out a fire where most of you would never want to visit.

    Typical display of the same clownish behavior from the usual suspects. A shame it has to mar a somber event.

    Well, we can start assigning blame liberally by[B] not[/B] blaming the people responsible for the "spontaneous" combustion - the speculator-slumlords and squatters....

    This is a lousy thread, and really reflects a hugely divisive tenor that's taken shape around here that I don't like at all.

    Two men are dead. Let's reflect on that, and the loss faced by their community and their families, instead of scoring political points against strangers on the Internet.

    Bad form cr, PK, FF2, and Jungle.
