Nine Firefighters Dead in Charleston

This is truly horrible. A fire started in a furniture store in the Charleston area last evening, and a roof collapse left nine of the firefighters dead. This is the stuff of nightmares. Sympathies to all the families and brother firefighters of the fallen men. It takes a special kind of person to run into a burning building knowing what might happen, and we mourn those who have fallen to keep us and ours safe.
