During the early hours of Thanksgiving on November 25th, 2021 a fire broke out in the basement of the Carroll residence in Thornwood NY in Westchester County, just north of NYC.
When Firefighters got there, fire conditions were not obvious from the outside right away. Chief James Gedris says the four people inside didn’t even know there was a fire. Firefighters had to knock on the door to get them out …but the Chief says that conditions changed and the fire grew quickly from the basement and started to extend to the upper floors.
FIREFIGHTER LOSES HIS LIFE
Sadly, Sean Carroll, 26 who was asleep in that basement, passed away. Sean was a Firefighter with the Thornwood FD. His father Richard Carroll is also a member of the Thornwood FD, and is a Sergeant with the Rye Brook Police Department and has served the community for over 30 years.
Sean’s brother Matt is also a member of the Thornwood FD and is an FDNY Firefighter. In addition to the tragic loss of Sean, the Carroll’s have been displaced by the house fire. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
