A firefighter who was badly hurt while fighting a massive Stittsville house fire last week was released from the hospital Monday, the city’s fire chief reports…
The unnamed firefighter – he posed for a photo with colleagues but asked not to be identified – was one of two volunteers who plunged through the floor of the home on Snowberry Way April 16. While his colleague was able to escape by climbing up a fire hose and was later released from the hospital, the more seriously injured firefighter had to be placed in an induced coma by doctors so his airway would not swell shut as he recovered.
