(CNN) -- At least two firefighters were killed when they were shot after arriving to battle a blaze at a house in upstate New York on Monday, officials said.

Two other firefighters were injured, police in Webster, New York, told reporters.

Authorities believe someone shot at the firefighters shortly after they exited their vehicles, said Rob Boutillier, fire marshal in the town of Webster, New York.

For hours, the gunfire stopped firefighters from working to extinguish the flamesand forced police SWAT teams to evacuate homes in the area.

Firefighters arrived at the scene before 6 a.m., Boutillier said. By 9 a.m., flames had engulfed three houses and a vehicle, he said.

Doctors were treating the wounded firefighters Monday morning, said Teri D'Agostino, a spokeswoman for Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York.

One firefighter escaped from the scene in his own vehicle about an hour after he was shot, then was transported to the hospital by an ambulance from another location, Boutillier said. He was listed in satisfactory condition, Boutillier said.

Another wounded firefighter was conscious and speaking when he was removed from the scene, Boutillier said.

"Our main concern right now is to have law enforcement evacuate the people in harm's way (and) make the scene safe for the fire department," Boutillier told reporters. "And then the fire department will go in and do its job."

Maybe people with an agenda are trying to push forth gun control laws.

Or a government vs. citizenry end scenario.

Or maybe just another nutbar.

The problem will only get worse with a growing population and a 'meh' economy.

So now before the fire dept can move in a swat team must first cordon off and secure the area.

I'm finished defending anything any other dimwits in this country decide to do...and now I'm just going to start viewing it as entertainment. Swear to you with the mentalities of some of the people down here it feels like you're trying to communicate with a caveman. America sucks, being an American sucks...and it has for some time now.

It is like watching the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, only in a much shorter time span. When a powerful empire gets to a certain point, decadence and complacency set in, people forget the hard work it took to build the powerful empire in the first place, they forget the values the empire was built on. Like the Roman Empire, impregnable for the outside, corruption, greed and decadence rot it from within. I am not sure if American can be saved from itself at this point.

It's just like American History X when Derek's dad gets killed by some drug dealers when putting out a fire. Now some little boy will grow up to be a neo nazi. :(
