    Oh no! Keep us updated please, Ray.

    I will definitely keep the firefighters who were hurt in my thoughts, and hope there are no further injuries.

    If you go to www.cbsnewyork.com, there's some video of the scene and some news about what took place. It says that there were six firefighters who fell 3 stories.

    Sadly...this additional:
    WCBS Newsradio 880 is reporting a second firefighter has died from injuries sustained at this alarm. East 178th Street, Tremont section of the Bronx.

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

    He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name's sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.

    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

    JANUARY 23RD, 2005

    A three-alarm blaze in a Bronx apartment building Sunday has claimed the life of two city firefighters and seriously injured four others.

    The fire started around 8:00 this morning on the third floor of a four-story building on East 178th Street in Mount Hope.

    The Fire Department says two firefighters were killed battling the blaze, one from Rescue 3 and the other from Ladder 27. Their names have not yet been released.

    According to the FDNY, four others were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in critical condition.

    According to eyewitnesses, several firefighters who rushed to the upper floors of the building to battle the blaze were sent flying out of a window into an alleyway below, possibly the result of a backdraft.

    Witnesses say they saw a large fireball, and several firefighters either jumped or were forced out a window.

    “It just pushed them out and he came down,” said witness Vanessa Whitehurst. “The other one was right on the other side of him because there were two windows, and the first one came out, and then another one. I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ It was just devastating.”

    “We heard the glass breaking out of the windows and we heard a lot of commotion, and we heard screaming and we heard firefighters saying, ‘Get down! Get down!’ And a lot of smoke was just coming through the house,” said building resident Cashana Burton.

    “It was very scary. I was also afraid of my apartment going in flames, but hopefully the wind helped this side of the building,” said another building resident.”

    The fire also forced the evacuation of two-dozen families who lived in the building. The American Red Cross is assisting the families forced out in the cold, and they say they expect more people to seek shelter as the day goes on.

    The FDNY is still trying to determine exactly what caused the blaze.
