Wait - these are the two guys who stayed in a burning house on CLEANUP DUTY, EVEN AFTER their 'low air' alarms started ringing...

"stupidity equals bravery': only in bridgeport.

Yeah, it's a shame they died, but the first thing they teach you when using breathing gear is that the 'low air' alarm MEANS SOMETHING VERY VERY IMPORTANT... having to do with the AIR... that you are RUNNING OUT OF... that you NEED TO SURVIVE... in all that SMOKE... which you CAN'T breathe... IS THIS MAKING SENSE TO YOU?

:D

firemen at the scene testified that they heard two alarms ringing on the second floor and those two guys were the only ones up there. QED.
