The Boston Fire Department is in mourning after a fire claimed the lives of two of its own and injured more than a dozen others. Andrew Spencer has the details. Fueled by strong winds, flames quickly spread through the four-story building west of downtown Boston. "In 30 years, I've never seen a fire travel that fast, escalate that quickly, and create such havoc in such a short a period of time," said Deputy Fire Chief Joe Finn, the Incident Commander. More than 150 firefighters responded with about 25 fire trucks to the building on Beacon Street. They rescued a number of people stuck on upper floors. At one point, an explosion blew firefighters down stairs. Officials later announced the grim news. "It's Lieutenant Ed Walsh of Engine 33," said Finn. "And Firefighter Michael Kennedy, also of Engine 33." "It's a sad day for the City of Boston," said Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. "We lost two heroes here today. Makes me proud to be mayor of the city of Boston after watching the way the men and women of the Boston Fire Department worked today." Officials say Lt. Walsh and Kennedy became trapped soon after entering the building. They were both later found in the basemen, where the fire appears to have started. Lt. Walsh leaves behind a wife and three children, Kennedy, a veteran, served in the Marine Corps. "Citizens were saved, and that's what we do, we sacrifice our life for the citizens of the city of Boston," said Richard Paris, President of the Boston Firefighters Union. Thirteen other firefighters suffered injuries from burns to broken bones fighting the blaze. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
