Kensington Warehouse Fire
EXCLUSIVE: Owners Of Kensington Warehouse Where 2 Firefighters Perished Subpoenaed For Investigation
CBS 3 has learned the owners of a vacant Kensington warehouse where two firefighters died and two others were hurt during an April 9th 5-alarm fire have now been subpoenaed to appear before a Grand Jury investigating the deadly blaze.
City Council plans to hold hearings into Fire Department policies and procedures, in the wake of the April warehouse blaze in Kensington that claimed the lives of two firefighters.
The CBS 3 I-Team has learned at least one of the owners of a Kensington warehouse that burned last month, leaving two firemen dead, is connected to a problem property in Atlantic City that neighbors and city officials say is partly to blame for flooding homes.
Hundreds of uniformed firefighters and others gathered Saturday for services for 60-year-old Lt. Robert Neary and 25-year-old firefighter Daniel Sweeney.
Hundreds of firefighters from all over the country came to salute 60-year-old Lt. Robert Neary on Friday afternoon. The decorated firefighter was killed on Monday, along with fellow firefighter, 25-year-old Daniel Sweeney.
City Council paid tribute to the fallen firefighters both with a moment of silence and with resolutions honoring their memory.
The wife of one of the property owners of the Kensington warehouse that burned Monday, killing two Philadelphia firefighters, says now is not the time to discuss the tragedy.
Dousing out smoldering rubble and removing charred debris is what officials say must happen first, before they determine what caused Monday’s five-alarm fatal fire in Kensington.
Although the warehouse was abandoned, neighbors say it certainly was not empty. The building had broken windows and doors that were open to anyone. They say it was a haven for problems.
