USFA LODD: Pennsylvania Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 03.11.2017

On  March 11, 2017  Lieutenant Dennis DeVoe, 45, died from injuries sustained while responding to a multiple alarm row house fire which had confirmed civilian entrapment. Lieutenant DeVoe’s privately owned vehicle was struck on the passenger side at a controlled intersection by a stolen vehicle, reportedly being operated by an intoxicated 19 year-old female who failed to stop. According to reports, the force of the accident sent Lt. DeVoe’s vehicle through a fence and into a parking lot. The driver of the stolen vehicle who fled the scene was arrested later at the hospital by law enforcement.
Our condolences to the DeVoe Family &; Friends, Harrisburg Bureau of Fire, and to all affected by Lieutenant Dennis DeVoe’s passing.
