    Thoughts and prayers go out to the firefighters and their families.

    Watching news reports.....appears to be a brake failure. Last transmission from the ladder was they had no brakes. Looks like they were returning from a medical call.

    I was buffing in Boston and heard the radio transmissions. They called an urgent to fire alarm that they had crashed into a building at Huntington and Parker Hill Ave's and requested EMS and additional companies. I got to the scene within 10 minutes and it was definitely sobering. I came down the hill they did, VERY STEEP. My thoughts and prayers go out to all involved.

    as some of you might know that firehouse is somewhat famous for its appearance on Firehouse USA Boston. Lt. Kevin Kelley's crew was the group that aired. Ive had the chance to meet this wonderful firefighter. He was a great firefighter and will be missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to the families. Its been reported that it took crews an hour to pull Lt. Kelley out and one firefighter broke his ankle trying to extricate him.

    Sad day indeed.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    I did a ride-a-long there on the Engine 2 years ago. Great group of guys, and an awesome Station, around all the colleges. God Bless his soul & family.

    I am conviced that God loves FF's, as it says in Genesis at the end of chapter one..."God saw all that He had made, and it was very good". RIP brother, may the God of ALL MERCIES show himself to your loved ones and families....thank you for your sacrifice to others, so that we might live. God bless and see ya in heaven, I'll look for you at the gate.

    To a brother firefighter, the best compliment one could ever pay is by calling him a 'good Jake'.

    My prayers are with him, his family, his crew, and all of our Boston brothers.

    Lt. Kelley, rest easy brother for your job is done and you have done it well. You were truly a 'good Jake.'
