|The body of a former Kenner firefighter was found in the ashes of his Loranger home shortly after 6 am Tuesday morning. State Fire Marshal Butch Browning says the victim is 79-year-old George Schilling. |
How the blaze started is unknown. Browning cautions the public that everyone is vulnerable to fire, even trained firefighting professionals.
"Firefighters do what they do everyday and they see death and destruction. This is just an example... it can be your own. Even firefighters are not immune from being in their own homes and being the victims of the power of fire."
