Line of Duty Death in D.C.
Early this morning at a two alarm blaze in North East D.C., a brother was killed while fighting the devil. He was a member of Engine 10. Three other firefighters are in CRITICAL condition at Medstar Burn Unit. Our prayers should go out to the families of these brothers, and all they left behind. Britt
