This is so sad ......


Firefighters who died were looking for trapped squatters
Chicago
The two firefighters who were killed today in Chicago, after being trapped under debris in a burning building, had gone inside to see if any squatters needed to be rescued from the vacant building.


The two firefighters who were killed today in Chicago, after being trapped under debris in a burning building, had gone inside to see if any squatters needed to be rescued from the vacant building.

Two others who were trapped with them were rescued. In all, 17 firefighters were injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Authorities speculated that squatters might have been burning debris to keep warm. They say there's no other way for the fire to have started.

The fire came exactly 100 years after 21 Chicago firefighters died when a wall collapsed at the Union Stock Yards fire.

Two of the firefighters who raced to the scene of today's blaze to try to rescue their colleagues had been at a service marking the anniversary of the 1910 fire.

Very tragic. It seems like these things happen near the holidays, which makes it that much worse. Agreed, and to my cop and firefighter friends, stay safe.
