    Sad day

    Firefighters who perished today were Lt. Edward J. Walsh and Firefighter Michael R. Kennedy. Both of Engine 33. Lt. Walsh was married with three kids under the age of 10 and FF Kennedy was a Marine combat vet. Just horrible.

    RIP. I have so much respect for the job these guys do and the sacrifice their families make.

    A few weeks ago my town was brought to a stand still after it's fire captain died in the line of duty.

    So many good men. They get no credit until they pass.

    Most likely would have missed this. Ran into a friend on my route today "day drinking", said he was having a bad day. His cousin was married to LT Walsh. He will be heading home for funeral.

    RIP

    BOSTON (AP) — A fast-moving fire that sent smoke and flames pouring from the roof and windows of a brownstone killed two firefighters on Wednesday and injured at least five others.

    The deadly fire snarled traffic in Boston's densely populated Back Bay neighborhood. Boston EMS spokesman Nick Martin said 18 people, all police officers or firefighters, were taken to hospitals. Fire department spokesman Steve MacDonald said there were no reports of brownstone residents missing and it appeared everyone who was inside at the time had escaped.

    City Councilor Josh Zakim, who represents the area, confirmed the two firefighters' deaths. He said nine units in the four-story building were affected.

    "On this tragic day, our thoughts and prayers are with the brave men and women who fought this fire," Zakim said.

    Major thoroughfare Storrow Drive was shut down for a time, and people were being asked to stay out of the area. The mayor's office designated the nearby Boston Public Library as a center for people displaced or otherwise affected by the fire to get help.

    An assistant district attorney was sent to the scene, standard procedure in cases in which there are serious or potentially life-threatening injuries or deaths, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley. There was no immediate word on the cause of the fire, which was still burning several hours later.

    Despite strong winds and cold temperatures, people gathered to watch firefighters work from outside the building.

    "The smoke was unbelievable," said Kayla Dasilva, who lives a few blocks away and went with her roommate to see what was happening.

    Anna Kosmidou, who lives in the apartment building next to the one that caught fire, said she and other residents were told they could not stay there Wednesday night.

    "I'm very, very afraid. I'm still in shock," she said. "They called me at work, and then I ran over here."

    The last Boston firefighter killed on duty died in 2009, when the fire truck in which he was riding struck a building after its brakes failed. Two firefighters died in 2007 battling a restaurant fire in the West Roxbury neighborhood.

    I mean the death threads in general. Sometimes it is hard to take FF2 seriously.

    Yes. Yes it is.

    But not this time, methinks.

    Oh, wow. Heard about it but didn't know anyone died. I think my brother was out there, heard something about it from him...

    Apparently, it was on the block Tom Brady has a house on and he had to evacuate.
    I made a funny that he was just burning evidence and it got out of control, but I dint know any Fire Fighters were hurt.

    People like that should be paid a lot more, and politicians MUCH less.
