>>> horrible news out of boston tonight where firefighters had to deal with a huge fire late today. it consumed all five floors of a row house in the back bay area . went to nine alarms eventually. the fire was fed by winds upwards of 45 to 50 miles an hour. sadly we've learned tonight two boston firefighters have died in this fire. at the height of the flames and faced with an internal collapse, incident commanders can be heard ordering all firefighters out of the structure, but it was apparently too late. at this hour a total of 18 people have been transported to hospitals in boston from this one fire. all of them first responders.
