By Jason White, NBC News
Four firefighters were shot — two fatally — as they responded to a large fire early Monday in Webster, N.Y., in the northwestern part of the state.
When firefighters arrived on the scene of the blaze around 6 a.m. ET, they were fired upon by one or more shooters, police and fire officials said.
Firefighters were forced to flee by the gunfire. The two firefighters who were hit but survived are being treated at a local hospital for their wounds.
‘I’m not aware of anything like this happening in Webster, obviously not a firefighter being fired upon,’ Webster Fire Marshal Rob Boutillier said, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. —->Continued
