TWO RI FFs INJURED AT FIRE DURING NEMO!

     

Saturday, February 9, 2013 Two firefighters were injured early Saturday after one slipped and injured his back and the other developed chest pains while fighting a fire at 433 Elmwood Ave. during "the teeth of the storm," said Acting Chief Michael J. Dillon.

The 3:30 a.m. fire was confined to a rear portion of an unoccupied three-story, wood-frame residential/commercial structure, Dillon said. The cause is under investigation.

Dillon said the blizzard conditions were some of the worst he's seen in 38 years of firefighting. Trucks got stuck in the snow; establishing a water line took several tries. Three alarms were called.

Dillon commended Deputy Assistant Chief Daniel Crowley, the firefighters and the department, "which rises to the occasion when the chips are down."
