The San Antonio Fire Department has suffered the loss of one of its own. Thirty-one-year-old firefighter Scott Deem was killed in a four alarm fire at a northwest side strip mall overnight. Deem was called ‘heroic’ by Fire Chief Charles Hood and remembered at several memorials set up around San Antonio.
"We are heartbroken. We are disappointed that we could not get him out. But I could not be happier about or prouder of the efforts to give him every chance of survival,” Hood said
