PHILADELPHIA - Two Philadelphia firefighters are dead after a wall collapsed on them while they fought a massive early-morning warehouse fire. They were inside a furniture store adjacent to the vacant warehouse when a wall collapsed and trapped them. The two firefighters killed were 60-years-old and 25 years old. Hot embers whipped by strong winds ignited fires in six homes nearby as well as another non-residential building. Three other firefighters were injured with one admitted to the hospital.
