Two Firefighters Killed in Mar Elias Blaze

The bodies of two firefighters from Beirut's Civil Defense, who had gone missing in a fire in Beirut, were found on Tuesday.

The firefighters were dousing the blaze at a printing house and a depot that lie 200 meters underground in Beirut's Mar Elias street on Monday night when they went missing.

Civil Defense rescuers cleared the building of its residents when the blaze broke out on Monday. But two of the firefighters, who were taking part in the rescue efforts, went missing.

Their bodies were found and transported to Beirut's Makassed hospital on Tuesday.
