Wilmington Still Grieves Over Fallen Firefighters One Year Later

WILMINGTON, Delaware (DelawareOnline) – The Sept. 24 fire on Lakeview Road should have been routine.

But when the first floor of the Canby Park rowhome collapsed, the basement fire erupted into a tragedy for the Wilmington Fire Department, marking the first line of duty deaths for the city in 18 years. Dozens more were injured –– physically and emotionally.

“It was supposed to be your typical, run of the mill fire for us,” firefighter James Grieco said, “but anything that could have gone wrong that night, it did.”
