SUMMARY:

On the frigid morning of January 6, 2018, at 8:51 a.m., Philadelphia Engine 45 responded to a fire call at 2240 Colorado Street in North Philadelphia. The snowcapped roofs and ice-covered streets lined the way as Engine 45 pulled up to a rowhome with fire showing and the interior full of heavy black smoke with people trapped. The crew of Engine 45 went into service attempting an interior attack on the fire to rescue the occupants. During the attempt, an interior structural collapse occurred, pinning Matt and injuring other members of Engine 45. Matt was trapped for a duration of time and ultimately passed away due to the injuries he sustained. Box Alarm 7743 will forever be associated with the life and legacy of Matt LeTourneau. He was posthumously promoted to the rank of Captain.

Grab a cup of coffee, invite everyone and please watch this important video.
