    UNION CITY (1010 WINS) -- A veteran firefighter was killed Saturday morning after going into a burning apartment building where moments earlier a teenager had helped to evacuate nearly a dozen residents.

    The fire burned through the three-story apartment building just before 6 a.m., with a neighboring building also affected, said Chief Brion McEldowney of North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue, which responded to the blaze along with firefighters from Hoboken and Jersey City.

    Killed was 45-year-old Vincent Neglia of North Bergen, a 23-year veteran, who went upstairs after hearing a report that people were trapped on the second floor. Neglia was pronounced dead at St. Mary's Hospital in Hoboken.

    The fire was under investigation, though McEldowney said it did not appear to be suspicious in nature.

    Alejandro Romero, a resident of the building next door who climbed down a ladder to the street after hearing a neighbor shouting, saw firefighters carry Neglia out of the building and attempt to revive him on the sidewalk.

    ``He wasn't breathing,'' said Romero, who said he had moved into the building just two days earlier. ``The whole thing was terrible. I never want to see anything like that again.''

    Eighteen-year-old Nestor Mendoza, who lived with eight family members in two apartments on the second floor of the building where the fire started, said he was awakened by a fire alarm coming from the third floor. He went upstairs and woke the building superintendent, and the two of them opened the door to a vacant third-floor apartment, where they encountered a huge cloud of smoke.

    ``I couldn't breathe,'' Mendoza said. ``I had to cover my face with my shirt.''

    Mendoza said he called 911 and awakened the rest of his family _ his parents, two uncles, an aunt and three cousins _ then went downstairs and knocked on the door of an apartment in the front of the building where a couple and their daughter live. They were able to escape, he said.

    Neglia was normally assigned to Engine Co. 13 in North Bergen but had been transferred Saturday to Squad 2 in Union City as part of a routine rotation, according to McEldowney. Had Neglia been at Engine 13, he likely would not have been one of the first responders to the fire, McEldowney said.

    Neglia was known for the zeal with which he approached his job.

    ``He was well-respected and known as an aggressive firefighter who cared about the public he served,'' McEldowney said. ``He was the kind of guy you wanted around to make your rescue.''

    A friend's phone call to Mendoza not long before the fire started turned out to be a blessing. Mendoza said he had still not fallen back asleep when the alarm went off upstairs. Along with his family members and the other residents, he was able to save his dog, a Chinese Shar-Pei named Luna, but had to leave two pet turtles in their tank in the apartment.

    When asked if he thought he was a hero, Mendoza pointed to the firefighters who were still massed on the street outside the building and said, ``I don't think I'm a hero. The heroes are the guys right over there. They didn't hesitate; they did what they were supposed to do, and one of them gave his life for us.''



    May he rest in peace.

    "Brother, when you weep for me
    remember it was meant to be
    Lay me down and when you leave
    remember I'll be at your sleeve

    Remember as you wipe your tears
    the joy I knew throughout the years
    I did the job I loved to do
    I pray that thought will help you through"

    Rest easy, Brother Neglia.
