People across the region are mourning Larry Leggio and John Mesh, the two Kansas City firefighters who were killed Monday night when a burning building collapsed on them. Two other firefighters were injured. The deaths marked the first multiple-casualty day for the Kansas City Fire Department since an explosion in 1988 that killed six firefighters.
