1 firefighter killed, 2 seriously hurt in San Antonio fire

A firefighter is dead and two others are injured while fighting a fire on the northwest side of San Antonio.

Two firefighters were pulled out of the building.

The Express-News reports Scott Deem, who had been with the San Antonio Fire Department for six years, was part of more than 60 fire crews that were sent to the strip mall about 9 p.m.

So far, officials have not said what led to Deem's death.

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

Before the fire, Matthew Christian Coronado, 25, massage therapy instructor at Milan Institute, said smoke began billowing in the front of the business, which is several stores away from where the fire started.




Deem's body is at the medical examiner's office. He said it was a very rough decision to leave a firefighter behind.

"We have firefighters that fought desperately tonight to try to save their friend's life", Hood said. "They'll be going home for the reminder of the night to a loved one", Hood said.

Firefighters formed two columns and saluted as an ambulance departed the scene just after midnight Friday morning.

"I'd like to ask the citizens of San Antonio to give us your prayers tonight, because we're hurting", said Hood.

When they evacuated Chief Hood says they noticed that multiple firefighters were missing.
