A Buffalo Firefighter has been rushed from the scene of a fire on the city’s East Side. Flames quickly tore through a home at 41 Frankfort avenue near Moselle 11:30 Thursday morning.
The family inside did escape, but one fire fighter suffered from heat exhaustion.
Our crews captured the firefighter being placed on a stretcher and rushed to a waiting ambulance.
Division fire chief Daniel Bossi says a first year fire fighter from Engine 22 lost consciousness.
“Everything we gathered from the situation – he was on his way out – he was talking and then he just collapsed in the stair case – they carried him out – brought him to the ambulance, brought him to the hospital. By the time he got to the ambulance – he was up and talking again,” Bossi told reporters at the scene.
