2 firefighters dead, 2 injured in building collapse in York

Three firefighters died Thursday while battling two different blazes in Pennsylvania and NY.

On Thursday night, a New York City firefighter died during a five-alarm fire in Harlem on the set of the film "Motherless Brooklyn". Their injuries are not life-threatening, the Dispatch said.

Before the evening was over, people had the chance to write messages on posters in support of the families of the firefighters.

Edward Norton is the film's director, and Bruce Willis and Alec Baldwin are among the cast, according to Internet Movie Database. Some already had fallen the previous day during the fire.

The fire spread rapidly and continued to advance, forcing firefighters to back out of the building.

Heavy construction equipment was brought to the scene, but Emergency Manager Cody Santiago would not say if they're going to demolish the building. During that time, Davidson became separated from the rest of the unit, Nigro said.

After searching for him, Davidson was found unconscious.

Anthony joined the York City Fire Department in August 2010. He is survived by his wife and four children.

The two other firefighters injured in the collapse "are beaten up and bruised".

Two firefighters were killed Thursday in York when a wall at a fire scene collapsed.

York officials said part of the four-story building fell on firefighters as they were looking for hot spots and investigating the cause of the fire that broke out Wednesday at the Weaver Organ and Piano factory.

Thursday's collapse involved a wall on the building's south side.

York Mayor Michael Helfrich said in a statement Thursday that firefighters Ivan Flanscha and Zachary Anthony died after being transported to York Hospital. Assistant Chief Greg Altland and firefighter Eric Swanson were also injured in the wall collapse, but are expected to recover.
