    2 Chicago Firefighters killed, dozen injured in a wall collapse

    Two Chicago firefighters were killed and more than a dozen others were injured after they became trapped in three-alarm blaze on the city's South Side this morning, according to WFLD-TV.

    Department spokesman Larry Langford confirmed earlier media reports that two firefighters were killed in the blaze. One firefighter died at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, while the other died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
    One of the firefighters was identified by The Chicago Sun-Times as 34-year-old Corey Ankum.
    Ankum -- a former Chicago police officer -- is survived by his wife and three children.
    The other firefighter killed in the blaze was Edward Stringer, who had been with the department since 1998, according to the mayor's office.
    Ten other firefighters are listed in stable condition while four others are in serious to critical condition, according to the report.

    Very sad knews. I heard it from my brother earlier today. I've heard that local fd's here are taking up donations.
    He who has the money, signs the cheques.
    He who signs the cheques, makes the rules.
    He who makes the rules, has the power.
