Philly reviewing other buildings after deadly fire
Philly officials reviewing other buildings after 2 firefighters' deaths; DA considers charges
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' Philadelphia officials are vowing a careful review of dozens of other large buildings and looking into whether criminal charges are warranted after a blaze at a vacant warehouse killed two firefighters.

The blaze broke out early Monday and two firefighters were killed in a collapse at a nearby furniture store where the flames had spread. The dead have been identified as 60-year-old Lt. Robert Neary and 25-year-old Daniel Sweeney.

District Attorney Seth Williams said Tuesday that more investigating must be done before a decision can be made on criminal charges.

Mayor Michael Nutter says the city is conducting reviews of about 30 other buildings owned by developers that own the warehouse. The city is also conducting a survey of large buildings like the warehouse where the fire started.
