9 Killed in S.C. Warehouse Fire
“There's a fire raging and they go toward it.”
Nine people perished in a blaze that swept through a furniture warehouse, a fire and rescue official said Tuesday.
Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley had said earlier Tuesday that at least two firefighters were killed. Firefighters saluted as the bodies of their colleagues were led from the warehouse.
Charleston County fire and rescue Lt. Chad Watson said the nine bodies found overnight included those of the two firefighters whose deaths were confirmed by Riley. He was not sure whether the other bodies belonged to firefighters or civilians. Read more

May God be with all the families and all the firefighters as they grieve for their fallen comrades. Also may God give them widsom, strength, and peace and let them know they are not alone.
