While no less sad, the earlier LODD we reported was not related to the recent fire in North Kingstown. To be clear, North Kingstown Fire Rescue Captain David Mowbray tragically died from an unrelated (to the fire) medical situation. The initial report sent to us, while well intended, did not provide accurate information. Another Firefighter suffered the heart attack and has survived while operating at that early-morning fire that destroyed a home in North Kingstown yesterday. Firefighters from North Kingstown and several surrounding communities responded to a call around 0045 hours Friday for a fire in a very large single-family mansion-with heavy fire on arrival.

RIP.
