We regret to pass on that 1 of the 7 Firefighters who were taken to the hospital after the collapse of that apartment building fire in Columbia (South Carolina) earlier, has died in the Line of Duty.
Firefighter James Muller from the Irmo Fire District, was part of the mutual aid response to Columbia-Richland. FF Muller was 25 years old and was the Irmo Rookie of the Year in 2021.
During the fire there was a collapse with subsequent MAYDAY’S and following rescues, 5 Firefighters from Columbia and 2 from Irmo were taken to the hospital. The conditions of these other Firefighters were not available but appear to be non-life threatening according to reports.
More to follow. Our condolences to all those affected.
Rest in Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
