LODD Details

On Wednesday, May 12, 2021, at approximately 12:45 a.m., New Haven Fire Department personnel arrived at the scene of a residential fire.  The members of the department rescued two residents who were trapped inside the house.  During the fire, Firefighter Torres was in trouble and transmitted a mayday.  He and his lieutenant were both found unconscious on the second floor of the home.  Firefighter Torres was transported to the local hospital and was later pronounced deceased.  The lieutenant was also transported to the hospital in critical condition.

Because of the generosity of those who’ve chosen to Become An Ally, FRBA was able to provide financial relief to the Torres family, in the midst of their darkest moment.
