    This story says that a firefighter and paramedic were among the injured.

    Let's wait and see before we start upping the LODD numbers.

    It was just confirmed at the press briefing by the State Fire Marshall that one Firefighter and one EMS worker was killed during the explosion. They are still investigating in scene.

    Some people are like slinkies, not really good for anything but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

    WOAY-TV is reporting the same. Stating the explosion occured just as the fire rig was arriving. A sad day....

    Sad news indeed. I caught a bit of this on the tv as I was getting ready to head to the stn for a night shift. I knew there had been an explosion, but it was an early report I guess, because there was no indication of fatalities.

    Makes you stop and think doesn’t it? Just how many “gas odor” & “gas leaks” we all respond to each year that turns out to be nothing.
    Yes, a sad day indeed.

    My thoughts go out to their family members, and their firefighter family.
