(WIDK By Mike Finiello) - A city mourns as catastrophe claims the lives of two Philadelphia fire fighters.
Daniel Sweeney, 25, and Lt. Robert Neary, 60, were killed when an adjoining furniture store collapsed during an investigation, burying them in rubble early Monday morning.
My Fox Philly reports that firefighters responded to a massive blaze in an abandoned warehouse building in the city’s Kensington section at about 3:15 a.m. on Monday.
The fire fighters were ensuring that the flames had not spread to other buildings when the roof and walls caved in.
Two more fire fighters were pulled from the debris with non-life threatening injuries.
It is uncertain whether or not criminal negligence charges will be pressed against the warehouse owners.
