An investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing. However, it is believed that the fire originated in the kitchen. Authorities are investigating whether it was accidental or arson. The fire caused the home’s roof to collapse. Orlando firefighters are working to determine whether there are any suspects. Firefighters used PulsePoint to provide firefighting teams with real-time incident information and live radio communications.
The Orlando Fire Department provided a brief summary of the incident. According to the department, the firefighters were in a rapid rescue mode. One firefighter from Tower 15 used a water can to knock back the fire and stretched a hose line. Lt. Ibrahim, another firefighter, did a 360-degree inspection of the scene before making contact. The patient was unable breathe. To save the victim’s life, firefighters put on a mask and opened a bypass to allow them to extricate him.
