Crews responded to Wood St. in Pittston City as part of a second alarm assignment for a working dwelling fire with entrapment. 1st alarm companies placed handlines in operation and immediately began the rescue efforts for the entrapped child on division 2. The child was removed and transported to an area hospital. Township crews relieved the first alarm companies on the fire attack of division 1. Crews operated for 4 hours before returning to service.
We later learned that the boy has succumbed to his injuries. We send our condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.
