The Unthinkable Happened Here...

Very early Christmas Eve morning around 5:30 AM local time, a call came in for a car and house fire on a road that runs between Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay in the Rochester suburb of Webster, NY. Volunteer firefighters responded and were ambushed by the man who started the fires. Two were killed and two were injured. Seven homes burned to the ground while police looked for the shooter, who committed suicide after a couple of hours of terror.
Life around here will never be the same again.
