Last night, many others hurt - two critical, please keep them and their family, friends and fellow fighters in your prayers.

R.I.P Firefighter Paul J. Cahill (I fear he's my friend's cousin)

R.I.P. Firefighter Warren J. Payne

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them, amen. May they rest in peace, amen. And may their souls and all souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace, amen. +

I saw this on the news early this morning. I said prayers.

West Roxbury is a close knit town. So very sad this happened



Firefighters are heroes...

RIP

It sounds like the two killed were the most experienced guys... if they had to pass on, I hope to God that it was quickly, and not painful...

That is awful to hear John.

That is very close to my house.

I am out of town right now, and this is the first i heard about it.

May God have mercy on their souls.
