Wednesday, March 5, 2008
We deeply regret to inform you that 21 year old Pine Township (PA) Firefighter Brad Holmes has died in the Line of Duty, passing away this morning after being burned over 75 percent of his body in a house fire last Friday that also took the life of a civilian.
FF Holmes (who is also the President of the FC) is the brother of the Pine Township’s Fire Chief, Chris Holmes and the son of their Assistant Chief, Joe Holmes.
FF Holmes and Firefighter Scott King were doing a search and attempted rescue into the burning duplex. Conditions in the building rapidly deteriorated and the Firefighters became trapped on the second floor....and they were rescued by a rapid intervention team. FF King has been discharged from the hospital.
