YORK, Pa. (AP) — Two Pennsylvania firefighters who died in the line of duty have been remembered in a service that drew thousands of people.
The event at the York Expo Center on Wednesday honored fallen York firefighters Ivan Flanscha and Zachary Anthony.
The men died last week when a large section of a wall at a former piano factory collapsed on them. Two other firefighters were injured.
The memorial included a last-bell ceremony, and “Taps” was played.
Flanscha and Anthony had been looking for hot spots and searching for the cause of an earlier blaze at the factory. They were the 12th and 13th York Fire Department members to die in the line of duty. Their badge numbers are being retired.
Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf says the state mourns their loss.
