3 Flint Firefighters Injured in Fatal Fire

by mobrian on April 28, 2009

Did Reduced Staffing Affect the Outcome of the Fire?

Flint firefighters responded to a dwelling fire Monday night which claimed the life of one civilian and injured three firefighters.  The first arriving truck (from station 5) arrived to find a working fire with a civilian trapped in a residential home that was not equipped with working residential sprinklers or smoke alarm.

Crews made a daring attempt at a rescue which resulted in three firefighter injuries (all firefighters have been treated and released).

Will these additional cuts affect the fire department response and at what cost to the community and firefighters?
