Every Baltimore City fire station will go out of service Wednesday during a ceremony for three firefighters killed on the job last month — and fire departments in D.C., Montgomery County and Prince George’s County will step up to help.
Lt. Paul Butrim, EMT/firefighter Kenny Lacayo and Firefighter/paramedic Kelsey Sadler were killed battling a fire in a vacant rowhome on Jan. 24.
In an unprecedented move, all Baltimore fire stations will go out of service for as long as 10 hours, starting at 7 a.m., on Wednesday so every Baltimore firefighter can attend a memorial for the fallen firefighters.
