New York City Firefighter Dies In Drug Lab Explosion
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A New York City Firefighter was
killed in the line of duty on Tuesday morning. According to authorities, a Bronx battalion chief
has been identified as the victim killed in a house explosion. The 17-year
veteran and father of three was struck by debris while fighting a fire
in the Kingsbridge neighborhood. According to the Fire Commissioner, the
man was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Officials say the fire department was responding to a report of a gas leak.
Once firefighters arrived, the residence exploded from a possible drug
lab in the home. Pictures taken at the scene of the explosion showed debris
strewn on the street and covering parked cars and showed most of the house
gone. The photos show the house had hollowed-out window panes and only
parts of the first floor left.
