Two Boston firefighters died today while battling a wind-whipped nine-alarm blaze that raced through a rowhouse in the city’s fashionable Back Bay neighborhood, according to two people with direct knowledge of the case.
The inferno broke out around 2:43 p.m. Wednesday on Beacon St. in the city's Back Bay neighborhood. All available fire personnel were called to help fight the massive blaze.
Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the firefighters who lost their lives saving others.
A sad, sad day for the city of Boston.
