from Clearfield Borough (Clearfield County, PA) that a working dwelling
fire turned bad this morning. The fire in a dwelling on Daisy Street
evolved into a mayday call with some reports of Firefighters trapped or
down at about 0920 hours. Initial reports are that there was a collapse
with possibly 3 Firefighters injured. We are awaiting additional

lawsuit. A former FDNY firefighter is suing several fire truck and siren
manufacturers for $150,000, claiming he’s suffered permanent,
“irreversible” hearing loss because the sirens in the engines he rode
were too loud.
O’Steen, who served from 1966 to 1981, said the companies sold trucks
and engines that were in “defective condition” and didn’t protect
firefighters from the shrill sirens.
The crew compartments of the vehicles lacked sufficient sound
insulation or other noise dampening measures that would lower the
intense noise,” according to the recently filed suit.HERE is more:
