NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The FDNY is mourning the loss of two fellow firefighters.

The Ray Pfeifer Foundation confirmed the deaths of retired FDNY captain Dennis Gilhooly of Engine Company 67 and retired firefighter Brian Casse of Engine Company 294.

Their deaths mark 200 firefighters who have died from 9/11-related illnesses since the terror attacks in 2001.

In July, President Donald Trump signed the “Never Forget the Heroes Act” on Monday, extending the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund through 2092.

The bill calls for extending the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund through 2092 and an additional $10.2 billion in payments over the next 10 years.
