A Worcester firefighter was killed and another was seriously injured after they became trapped in an early morning three-alarm blaze Thursday. Firefighter Jon Davies, a 17-year-veteran assigned to Rescue Co.1, died at the scene while Firefighter Brian Carroll, a 14-year veteran also assigned to Rescue 1, was transported to a local hospital where he was listed in stable condition.<p>Crews responded to the fire at the three-story home at 44 Arlington Street around 4:18 a.m. to find it fully involved with flames coming from the rear. Firefighters cleared 12 occupants from the building and were told that there was another person who may be trapped in a rear back bedroom. Davies and Carroll both from Rescue 1 went back inside to search for the victim when the burning building collapsed on top of them, killing one and trapping the other.<p>Ff.Carroll was trapped for nearly an hour until he was freed from the rubble by fellow firefighters. The city's latest line of duty death comes just days after the 12-year anniversary of the death of six Worcester firefighters who perished in the Cold Storage Warehouse Fire on Dec. 3, 1999.<p>SmokeShowingPhotography sends their condolences to the family of FF Daves and the Worcester Fire Department.<p>Rest in Peace Brother.
