    The four firefighters became trapped in a collapse at a burning furniture store that was sparked by embers from a 5-alarm blaze that tore through a nearby warehouse early Monday morning.



    The five-alarm are at a warehouse at York and Jasper streets sparked a blaze at a neighboring furniture store that left two firefighters dead and two seriously injured.

    Two Philadelphia firefighters were killed and two others were seriously injured after a collapse occurred while battling a commercial fire early Monday morning.


    The four firefighters became trapped in a collapse at a burning furniture store in the city's Kensington section that was sparked by embers from a 5-alarm blaze that tore through a nearby warehouse at East York and Jasper Streets around 3 a.m., according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

    The firefighters were transported to Temple University Hospital where two with Ladder 10 were pronounced dead.

    The fire spread to several other structures and was declared under control around 6 a.m., Deputy Fire Commissioner Ernest Hargett told the newspaper.

    Crews evacuated residents from about 300 nearby homes and protected surrounding structures from flying embers.


    The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
