2 Boston Firefighters Killed While Fighting 9 Alarm Blaze

Firefighters are real silent heroes. They put their lives on the line to save people they have never met. Engine 33 who suffered casualties was also one of the first units to respond to the marathon bombing last April. The tragedies these men suffer and experience are crazy.

RIP to these two fine men and keep BFD in you thoughts.

P.S. Next time you have a bad day at school or work remember this: you got to go home.
