Descansa em paz camarada !!
Recent news, say that a tire burst.
Sorry to hear about your FF's. Our thoughts are with them and their families. My brother is a FF in Austin, Texas, Ladder Company 36. He is married to a second generation Portuguese/American. He and his son speak English, Spanish and Portuguese. He has visited Portugal several times, they love it there. His wife's maiden name was Marques. Be safe, by the way I enjoy your input. Your FF seem very well trained.
My condolences
