This is just some general; video from the scene:
Firefighter Roy was assigned to Ladder 4 at the Webster Square fire station. The second injured Firefighter was evaluated at the hospital and released.
The 3 story building has six apartments. There were no reported injuries of residents, most of whom said they were sleeping where the fire broke out.
This is an extremely difficult time for the Worcester Fire Department-in an historically difficult month for the fire service. It was on Dec. 8, 2011, that Worcester lost Firefighter Davies, who was battling a burning 3 decker on Arlington Street when he got caught in a collapse. Then last week, the firefighting community remembered the 6 line-of-duty deaths of the Firefighters, Dec. 3, 1999, in the cold storage building. Lt. Thomas Spencer, Lt. Timothy Jackson Sr., Lt. James Lyons III, and Firefighters Jeremiah Lucey, Paul Brotherton and Joseph McGuirk died in the Line of Duty after becoming trapped in the fire. The fire was determined to have been started by two homeless people. The cause of today fire remains under investigation.
