1 firefighter killed, 2 seriously hurt in San Antonio fire

One firefighter is dead after a massive 4-alarm fire at a Northwest Side shopping center Thursday night, the San Antonio Fire Department said.

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.

So far, officials have not said what led to Deem's death. Deem had been with the department for six years.

The other two firefighters were transported to a local hospital, but their conditions were not released.

As of 11 p.m. sources said one firefighter was possibly unaccounted for more than an hour after firefighters started fighting the blaze.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A San Antonio firefighter died and two others were seriously hurt battling a blaze at a strip mall that grew so intense that fire crews were forced to retreat as parts of the building collapsed.

Firefighters formed two columns and saluted as an ambulance departed the scene just after midnight Friday morning. He said they don't ever want to leave a firefighter behind, but they would have lost 15 or 20 more firefighters had they stayed inside.

"I'd like to ask the citizens of San Antonio to give us your prayers tonight, because we're hurting", said Hood. "But we're going to continue to do the good job that we always do", Hood said.
