BOSTON (CBS/AP) — A 9-alarm fire on Beacon Street has claimed the lives of two Boston firefighters. The fire broke out around 2:30 p.m. at 298 Beacon Street.


The firefighters who died have been identified as 43-year-old Lt. Ed Walsh and 33-year-old Firefighter Michael Kennedy of Engine 33. Both firefighters were stationed at 941 Boylston Street.


Lt. Walsh, of West Roxbury, was married and a father of three young children, two boys and one girl. He has been with the Boston Fire Department for nine and a half years.


Firefighter Michael Kennedy, of Hyde Park, is a Marine veteran and has been with the Boston Fire Department for six years.


“Today is a sad day in the city of Boston,” Mayor Walsh said Wednesday night. “We lost two heroes here today. It makes me proud to be the mayor of the city of Boston watching the way the men and women of the Boston Fire Department worked today.”
