2 firefighters dead in 'tragic day' for Wilmington Fire Department

, and , The News Journal 11:41 a.m. EDT September 25, 2016

Two longtime firefighters were killed when a floor in a Canby Park rowhouse gave way in an intense fire early Saturday, injuring four others in what Chief Anthony Goode called "a very tragic day for the Wilmington Fire Department." The incident is the first death of a city firefighter in almost two decades.

Lt. Christopher Leach, 41, a 14-year veteran, and Senior Firefighter Jerry Fickes, 51, a 13-year veteran, died in the fire. Both men had children and families, Goode said at a press conference Saturday.

Firefighters Ardythe Hope and Brad Speakman were transported to Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, Pennsylvania, and were in critical but stable condition Saturday evening.

Two other injured firefighters, Terrance Tate and John Cawthray, were treated at Christiana Hospital and discharged Saturday afternoon.
