Two upstate New York firefighters remain hospitalized in guarded condition Tuesday, a day after being shot in a hail of bullets that killed two other firefighters responding to a house fire that investigators say appears to have been set as a trap.

Firefighters Joseph Hofstetter and Theodore Scardino are recovering at a hospital in Rochester, New York.

They were among four firefighters who responded to the blaze in the suburban Rochester town of Webster Monday morning. Authorities say William Spengler set a house and car ablaze and then opened fire when the firefighters showed up. He later exchanged bullets with a police officer before killing himself.

Spengler’s sister is missing. The 62-year-old was released from prison in 1998 after serving 17 years for killing his grandmother.

  1. Clearly the answer is . . . we need to arm our firefighters! They should even be able to handle flamethrowers! Call the NRA for advice.

  2. Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat.Com™ and commented:
    Legal gun registration & ownership seems to not apply to this case….now what say you NRA gun nuts? Rewrite the 2nd amendment to allow for NO sale, ownership or use of handguns or assault weapons….the second amendment was written in 1791 for flintlock pistols & black powder muskets. You want to bear arms, bears a flintlock pistol & a black powder musket. Thank you Ms. Kstreet607 for this post.
