Prayers for fallen and injured firefighters

Today on the 100th anniversary of the Chicago stockyard that killed 21 firefighters we lost 2 in a building collapse.

It's never easy when you hear someone passes, it's especially hard when it's someone risking their lives to save others. These 2 men died searching for squatters that may or may not have been in the building.

Lt. Edward Stringer was a relief lieutenant whos job was to fill in for those on furlough, sick leave, vacation, etc.

Corey Ankum is a former police officer who leaves behind a wife and one year old baby who was only on the department for two years.

Along with the men who passed there were several injures, a few who still remain hospitalized at this time. Please say a prayer for the fallen and their families. Please also pray for the members of the CFD as they mourn the loss of two of their own.

God speed gentlemen.
