Four Houston Firefighters Killed in Hotel Fire

The fallen firefighters included veterans as well as one who graduated from the fire academy in April.

"Next thing you know, it was 'boom!' It scared the crap out of me. I mean, it sounded like a cannon going off. That's how loud it was," Sewell told the newspaper. "I could have sworn it picked this building up and put it back down."
