This story is extremely sad... the fact that is happened on Christmas Eve makes it even worse.
Four volunteer firefighters were shot -- two fatally -- as they responded to a blaze early Monday at a small cluster of homes along Lake Ontario in Webster, N.Y.
The firefighters were shot as they exited their vehicles after being called to the scene just before 6 a.m. ET, police and fire officials said.
It appears they were the victims of a "trap," police said.
