Another person was killed after a fire in Canarsie Sunday. The news comes in addition to a firefighter who died while trying to put the fire out.
Timothy Klein, 31, was a member at Ladder Company 170 in Canarsie. He was a six-year veteran. He was killed Sunday afternoon while fighting a three-alarm house fire.
As his body was transferred from the hospital Sunday night, he was saluted by his fellow members of the FDNY.
Firefighters say Klein was fighting a fire at a home on Avenue N when the second floor of the building collapsed on him and several other firefighters. The rest were able to make it out, but at least five were hurt.
The NYPD has just confirmed a second person was killed during the fire. Officers say one person who was initially unaccounted for is the person who was found dead inside the home.
No word on the cause of the fire at this time.
