A total of 12 civilians were rescued from the Kings Tower apartments fire, and four, including a three-month old child, were taken to the hospital for treatment.
Chief Richard Braun says three other firefighters were also injured, two with second degree burns, and one for smoke inhalation. All three were treated and released.
Braun says there are three investigations into the fire that led to the death of Fire Apparatus Operator Daryl Gordon. One will look at what caused the fire. Braun expects that report to be issued soon.
The National Institutes for Occupational Safety and Health and city departments will conduct simultaneous, but separate, investigations. Braun says those reports will not likely come out for months.
Braun says there has been an outpouring of support from fire departments around the area, and from around the country. He says Toledo’s fire chief was among the first to offer condolences. Toledo lost 2 firefighters in January of 2014.
Local 48 president Matt Alter says funeral arrangements are still being planned, but the funeral will likely happen in the middle of next week.
The flag at Cincinnati's Firefighter memorial remains at half staff Friday morning, marking the death Thursday morning of fire apparatus operator Daryl Gordon.
Flowers, balloons, a wreath and a teddy bear are laid at the base of the memorial.
