This is so sad!
Two courageous firefighters were killed today while trying to put out a 9-alarm Brownstone fire in Boston that wound up sending at least 18 people to the hospital.
The deadly blaze, which broke out in the city's densely populated Back Bay neighborhood, started in the basement of a four-story brick row house and spread quickly thanks to unusually strong 40 miles per hour winds.
The details surrounding these two heroic first responders' deaths are still murky, but officials admit multiple firefighters were at one point trapped in the building.
Sam Wallace, an onlooker and the president of the Back Bay Neighborhood Association, says he saw an explosion shortly after the house caught on fire.
He described the horrible ordeal:
