Two Boston Firefighters were killed and four others injured in a 4 alarm fire at 1727 Center Street in West Roxbury about 9:15pm Wednesday night. The fire started in the Hi Ho Thai restaurant and extended into a dog grooming parlor next door.
The fire spread rapidly and a 2nd alarm was ordered shortly after the first arriving companies. A partial roof collapse occurred causing an air conditioning unit to fall into the building. All companies were ordered out of the building by Command.
The scene grew chaotic when several Firefighters were carried from the building by their brothers.Two Firefighters were in cardiac arrest and CPR was immediately administered by a District Chief and Boston EMS Paramedics.
Command ordered a 3rd and 4th alarm as the fire intensified and more manpower was needed. Tower Ladder 17 operated a gun from their bucket
and several hand lines were in use.
Four other Firefighters were transported to area hospitals
