Balto Fire Officer Found Dead at Fire Scene - FALL

November 12, 2014, 05:52:18 PM CCF Administrator

BALTIMORE CITY FD SAFETY OFFICER FOUND DEAD AT SCENE

It is with deep regret that we pass on to you that veteran Baltimore City FD Safety Officer Lt James Bethea (serving Balto City FD since April 4, 1973) was found dead today at the scene of a fire that occurred earlier.

The safety officer vehicle had been on scene at the E. North Ave scene, since the fire early this morning. Initial reports are that Lt Bethea had gone to check exposures for safety concerns and while doing so, it appears he fell 8' into the basement of the abandoned structure-remaining there, initially unnoticed after companies had cleared.

Later this morning, it was reported that the FD vehicle was on still the block - assistance was sent. The Balto City FD members searched and found him gone in the basement of the exposure. Much more to follow as they investigate.

Our condolences to all those affected by this horrible loss of a very well respected veteran Fire Officer.
 
Rest in Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass it On.

26 Year Old FF LODD - Lancaster County, PA

October 24, 2014, 12:46:36 PM CCF Administrator

We regret to pass on to you that a 26-year-old female Firefighter (and brand new Mom who just had a baby about a month ago) died in the Line of Duty this morning in Fulton Township, Lancaster County, PA. Christi Rodgers, 26, was a volunteer Firefighter with the Robert Fulton Fire Company in Wakefield, http://www.513rffc.com/ .

She was was home when her pager went off to respond to the house fire at 394 Pilottown Road. While turning out, she went into cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The fire was dispatched around 0453 Hours-it is near the Maryland border.

"The two-story dwelling was fully involved when we got there," Assistant Chief Dan Appel

said. "Flames were 40 feet in the air." About 50 firefighters from Lancaster, Chester in PA, and Harford and Cecil counties in Maryland worked together to put out the blaze.

It was declared under control around 6:45 a.m. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest in Peace.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
