    Only speculation at this time, CTV reporting 2 LODD's in a possible backdraft with another FF seriously hurt.

                Two firefighters are dead after a major flash engulfed them in a burning Winnipeg home Sunday night.

                Two Winnipeg firefighters die fighting housefire

                The fire started out routine, but then spiralled out of control. Firefighters were still battling it at last report.

                Alex Forest, president of the United Fire Fighters of Winnipeg, said a flashover hit the men.

                He described the phenomenon as "a sudden, violent burst of flames at extreme temperatures that our protective equipment can't protect us from.

                "Our gear protects us to hundreds of degrees Celsius, so it was just unthinkable," Forrest said.

                He had the task of bringing the dead men's families in to see their bodies. Both men were senior captains with more than 30 years experience.

                At least three or four other firefighters were injured, one very seriously, he said. "It's a tremendous tragedy for Winnipeg."

                The blaze burned intensely, even in the -39-degrees-Celsius temperatures.

                Aerial television images showed the home lighting up the surrounding neighbourhood.

                About 15 to 20 surrounding homes were evacuated.

                Shaken area residents watched the scene unfold.

                "It's just been them trying to pull out firemen. One after another they were pulling them out into the ambulances," Mark Lemont told CTV Winnipeg.

                "They were just trying to get them out. everyone was yelling for medics. Trying to be as calm as it can be. but it looked pretty bad."

                One report indicated one stricken firefighter was convulsing.

                Neighbours say two teenagers were in the home. They were studying in the basement when the fire broke out, but got out safely.

                The parents are apparently away on a holiday.

                          The house involved belonged to a local judge. He and his wife were away on holidays while his 20 year old daughter and 17 year old son were home when the fire broke out.

                          In addition to previosly posted info, I was told that one the the injured FF's in hospital today has suffered burns to over 70% of his body.

                          During the flashover, one the the FF's inside had his radio melt in its pocket, inside his jacket.

                          "I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn't park anywhere near the place."

                          "When you are kind to someone in trouble, you hope they'll remember and be kind to someone else. And it'll become like a wildfire."
