There was a massive fire in Charleston, SC last night and 9 firefighters lost their lives trying to contain the blaze. They managed to contain the fire enough so that it did not spread to the neighboring subdivision of homes, nor did it spread to the adjacent gas station. The roof of the building caved in; 9 died, 2 were seriously injured.
Pray for their souls. Pray for the families.
Pray for their Catholic chaplain who said Holy Mass for them this morning, after a full night’s work with his brother firefighters, with a full day’s work ahead visiting their families to ascertain their needs at this time.
