FDNY Firefighters Rescue Two From Brooklyn Fire

Lt. Ken Michitsch, Lt. Matt Martin, FF Tom Bradley, FF Sean O’Grady and FF Kevin Coursey.

FDNY firefighters from Engine 281, Ladder 147 and Engine 250 rescued two women from a fire on East 8th Street on Dec. 20.

Firefighters were called at around 5:30 a.m. and as they arrived, they saw heavy smoke in the rear of the building and the alleyway.

They were told three children were trapped, so they used portable ladders to quickly enter the building and conduct their search.

As fire was coming down the hallway toward them, firefighters searched the second floor of the building, including the bedroom where they were told the victims might be located.

They then got word the victims might be on the third floor, so they went upstairs located the victims – three young women – in a bathroom where they sought refuge from the extreme heat and smoke.

“It all happened in just a few minutes,” Firefighter Tom Bradley from Ladder 147 said.

Firefighters who responded to the Brooklyn fire, including members of Engine 281, Ladder 147 and Engine 250.

Firefighter Bradley, along with Lt. Matt Martin and Firefighters Brian Clifford, Sean O’Grady, Kevin Coursey from Ladder 147 and Lt. Ken Michitsch from Engine 250, removed the victims.

They said it was difficult, as there was zero visibility in the hallways due to the heavy smoke conditions.

The victims were treated by FDNY EMS members and transported to local hospitals. One of the women died at the hospital. The other two are in critical condition.

“This was a team effort,” Firefighter Bradley said. “In this job, we don’t do anything by ourselves.”

It was noted that the residence did not have working smoke alarms, and the early notification may have helped the women evacuate before it was too late.
