The deaths of two firefighters Monday evoked memories of 2004, the last time two Philadelphia firefighters were killed in the line of duty.
The deaths of Capt. John Taylor and Firefighter Rey Rubio resulted in criminal charges.
Rubio and Taylor were asphyxiated after they were trapped in the burning basement of a Belgrade Street rowhouse in Port Richmond in August 2004.
Fire officials said at the time Rubio may have become trapped in the haphazard wiring for lighting that was being used to grow marijuana plants and that Taylor may have died because he stayed behind to try to help his comrade.
