im a friend of one of the victims, several members of the fire department refused to go into the house. the first firefighter on the scene refused to go in there, thats when Mr Kennedy stepped up and did the courageous thing he did that cost him his life. and then, this brave deputy went in after the both of them, kudos to him!

This was my husband that lost his life in our house fire. The cop was Kevin Thompson and my father and brother were the two men that went in to try and save my daughters friend along with the cop. I don't know who the 2 firefighters were that went in and got my husband out but I really want to talk to them. ANYONE that can help me find out who and how to contact them would be very helpful and greatly appreciated.
good luck

I would like to know excuse mes real name. You said you was a friend of one of the victims. You are absolutely correct, several of the firefighters would not go in. I don't know or understand why though.

I've had the honor of knowing Steve for a few years and can proudly say that he would have done this for anyone, whether he knew them or not. Brother you are dearly missed by everyone, at home and here in Canada. No matter what, I love you. Misty we are here if you need anything.
