Firefighter dies while fighting massive blaze at San Antonio strip mall
May 20 2017 by Francis Osborne
The fire broke out at the Ingram Park shopping center in the 6800 block of Northwest Loop 410 just past 9 p.m. Thursday. Officials say another firefighter suffered critical injuries and a second was seriously hurt.
Over 100 firefighters responded to the blaze. At least one of the firefighters was airlifted to San Antonio Military Medical Center, according to initial reports.
Authorities learned that one firefighter, Scott Deem, was missing and Hood said he became trapped inside.
San Antonio Fire Department Chief Charles Hood said crews initially entered the shopping center to battle the blaze but were forced to evacuate after parts of the building started to collapse from the intense flames.

"Every day we run about 800-plus calls and we take care of people most of the days of their lives", he said. Because the situation was becoming too unsafe, Hood said the rest of the firefighters had to evacuate the building, leaving Deem behind. The six-year department veteran was later found dead among the debris.
Firefighters were seen forming two columns and saluted an ambulance that departed the scene just after midnight Friday morning.
Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement that he and his wife Cecilia extended their sympathies to Deem's family "during this unimaginably hard time". "But we're going to continue to do the good job that we always do", Hood said. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
