Firefighter dies in Dallas condo complex blaze


DALLAS (AP) — Dallas firefighters have recovered the body of a comrade who reported by radio being trapped while battling a condominium complex blaze.

A U.S. flag covered the firefighter’s body when it was removed from the rubble Monday morning. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says two firefighters were transported to a hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Two residents were treated for minor smoke inhalation.

Authorities are trying to determine what sparked the fire reported shortly before 3 a.m. Monday at a three-story complex. About two dozen units were damaged.

Most of the fire was out by dawn as firefighters searched the smoldering debris. The body was located and removed about six hours after the fire started.
