    A Toronto Firefighter was killed responding to this explosion.



    Firefighter Found Without Vital Signs Succumbs Following Massive Blast
    Sunday August 10, 2008
    CityNews.ca Staff

    A firefighter died Sunday after he was found without vital signs near the site of a massive propane explosion in northeast Toronto.

    The firefighter was transported to hospital from the scene near Keele and Wilson after he was reportedly found by another member of the department.

    No cause for the death was immediately revealed and the man's name hasn't been released, pending the results of an autopsy and notification of next of kin. Division Chief David Sheen would only describe him as a 25-year veteran.

    "Toronto fire services regrets to announce that this afternoon, we lost one of our fire fighters on the scene," Sheen confirmed. "It was just in the course of him performing some operations that he went down.

    "Every effort was made to resuscitate him, and we are certainly very thankful to Toronto EMS for doing an outstanding job to help news that respect ... I'm sure that all of our guys are having a rough time with it."
