Seven Alarm fire kills 2 NY Firemen

Posted by gnn1 on Sunday, 19 August 2007

A massive fire, just south of NYC’s Ground Zero has claimed two firemen’s lives. The Deutsche Bank building was damaged heavily on 9/11. The fire took around 250 firefighters nearly 5 hours to extinguish. Its cause wasn’t immediately known.

Both firemen appear to have to suffered cardiac arrest due to inhalation of carbon monoxide. Another ‘five or six’ firefighters were hurt, according to NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

One man has been identified as Joseph Graffagnino, 34, who has served for 8 years. The other’s name wasn’t released as family hadn’t been notified. I’ll update when I get it.

Edit: The other fireman’s name is Robert Beddia, 53. I don’t have years of service currently.
