Two firefighters were killed Friday while battling a massive fire that heavily damaged a woodworking company in central North Carolina.
"One was dead on arrival and one died here this morning," said Michael Burton, a spokesman at Rowan Regional Medical Center.
Burton said two other firefighters injured in Friday's blaze at Salisbury Millworks were being treated for first and second degree burns. He said doctors don't consider their injuries to be severe.
Burton said one other injured firefighter was sent to North Carolina Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem for treatment. Officials there declined to comment.
Firefighters responded to the fire shortly after receiving a 911 call around 7 a.m. Departments from across the county north of Charlotte were called to fight the blaze, the Salisbury Post reportedWise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.
The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.
Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.
