    Two New York Firefighters Killed in House Fire, Collapse

    Two firefighters were killed and two others sustained less serious injuries in a collapse at a working basement fire at a residence in Pompey, New York Thursday night.

    The Onondaga County's Sheriff's Office said firefighters were dispatched to the 2800 block of Sweet Road for a house fire shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday. They would not release any further details, advising that the investigation was just beginning.

    John "Gino" Ginocchetti, 41, was President of Manlius Professional Fire Fighters Local 3316 and a veteran firefighter/paramedic of 12 years with the Manlius Fire Department. He is survived by his wife Pam and 15-year-old son Timothy.

    Timothy J. "T.J." Lynch, 28, had been a career firefighter/paramedic with the Fayette Fire Department for a couple of years. He was also a volunteer with Manilus. He and his wife Donna had a 18-month-old son, Phillipp.

    The bodies of the firefighters were found at about 11:30 p.m., officials said. Pompey is about 12 miles southeast of Syracuse.
