1 firefighter killed, 2 seriously hurt in San Antonio fire

The firefighters of Ladder 35 went full force into the four-alarm fire that took over the Ingram Park shopping center late Thursday.

The firefighter that was killed in the blaze has been identified as Scott Deem, a six year veteran of the department.

Hood said two other firefighters were transported to area hospitals - one a priority one transport and the other a priority two.

San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood says because the shopping center had a gym and because of the time of day they conducted a search hand rescue.

More than 60 fire units responded to the blaze, which quickly damaged multiple units within the shopping center. Hood said both firefighters are expected to survive.

Hood said the fire was so intense that parts of the building started collapsing and crews had to go on the defensive.

But Romero has already solved a problem about De Gea's successor should all attempts to keep the Spaniard fail. He has played second fiddle to De Gea in the Premier League, starting just two top-flight games.

Three firefighters were trapped during the fight and were soon rescued, witnesses said, adding that they saw them being loaded onto stretchers. However, conditions inside rapidly changed and may have prevented Deem from escaping.

"[It's a] Very rough decision to leave a firefighter behind, and that's not what we do", Hood said during a media briefing.

The firefighters lined up on each side of the ambulance carrying Deem's body and saluted they left the scene, KENS 5-TV reported.

We humbly ask for your prayers for his family at this.

"Those who put their lives on the line to serve others deserve our deepest respect, and we can never say thank you enough", he said.
