Firefighters Heal after Fatal House Fire Claims Four
KETTERING -- Two children, their mother and grandfather were defenseless against the massive flames that engulfed their home early Thursday. It's not just that family who needs to heal, the tragedy has taken a psychological toll on firefighters.
Kettering Fire Chief Jon Durrenberg said responding crews had a debriefing Thursday night to talk about their emotions in an open forum, but the healing is just beginning.
When fire crews arrived, the home on Craig Drive was already engulfed in flames, too intense to allow entry.
Fire investigators say there was no hope of saving those stuck inside.
The fire claimed the lives of 2-year-old Jacob, 4-year-old Shaun Jr., their mother 36-year-old Alicia Carroll-Mobley, and grandfather 76-year-old Forrest Carroll.
Durrenberg says he can't remember the last time the department worked on a fire that claimed multiple lives.
One police officer and two firefighters suffered minor injuries while battling the blaze and were taken to the hospital. But physical pain can't compare to the emotional.
"We'll take care of ourselves later and we'll make sure everyone's attended to and everyone comes out of this physically and mentally healthy," Durrenberg said solemnly.
This Saturday, the entire fire department, police officers involved and dispatchers will attend a mandatory C.I.S.D., or 'Critical Incident Stress Debriefing' session.
