Calling hours continue on Saturday for the two West Webster firefighters who were shot and killed during what authorities call an ambush on Christmas Eve.

The calling hours will be from noon to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Webster Schroeder High School.

The West Webster Fire Department tells News10NBC the hours have not been extended.

Troopers say they expect thousands of people to be on hand on Saturday to honor  Lieutenant Mike Chiapperini and firefighter Tomasz Kaczowka.

More than 600 people came out on Friday night to pay their respects to the fallen firefighters.

News10NBC will have coverage of the calling hours all day and during our newscasts tonight at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.
