We regret to pass on that 2 Firefighters died in the Line of Duty from the South-West Limburg (Belgium) FD, Heusden-Zolder station, last night.
Members were operating in the vacant structure (occupied by homeless) and there was a flashover. When conditions changed members were ordered out but several didn’t make it out, and suffered significant injuries, and two others gave their lives.
Several firefighters were transported when rescued-others couldn’t be found resulting in the two Firefighter deaths.
There have been previous fires in this vacant structure.
HERE is some news footage of the fire:
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
