USFA LODD: Massachusetts Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 12.09.2018

On December 9, 2018, Firefighter Christopher Roy, 36, responded with the Worcester Fire Department to a basement fire of a 3-story, 6-unit apartment building. Conditions deteriorated rapidly and, ultimately, the fire went to five alarms. Heavy fire forced several firefighters to the second floor to evacuate. With the assistance of other crews and the Rapid Intervention Team, five firefighters escaped using ladders. Two additional firefighters, including Firefighter Roy, became trapped and had to be rescued by fire crews. Both were transported to a local hospital where Firefighter Roy passed away from the injuries sustained. The second firefighter was evaluated and released.
