Two New York firefighters shot dead at scene of fire

At least two upstate New York firefighters were shot and killed and two wounded today at the scene of an early morning house fire in a suburb of Rochester, according to local news reports.

The two firefighters were shot by a gunman as they responded to the scene of several house fires in Webster, New York, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported.

A spokeswoman at Strong Memorial Hospital said two Webster firefighters were being treated for gunshot wounds and were in "guarded" condition.

Local law enforcement officials were evacuating and searching homes near the site of the fire in Webster, but had not yet turned up any suspects, the newspaper reported.

"The whole strip's been evacuated," resident Michael Damico told the Democrat and Chronicle. "They're evacuating all of the houses and going through them."
