Firefighter injured in crash on way to hoverboard fire dies of injuries

A four-year-old girl died Saturday morning in this house fire in Harrisburg Pennsylvania

A Harrisburg Fire Department lieutenant has died in a crash with a suspected drunk driver as he responded to a fatal structure fire.

Harrisburg Bureau of Fire Lt. Dennis Devoe was involved in auto crash with another vehicle as he was responding to the Friday night blaze.

Fire authorities in Harrisburg stated that one victim had jumped off of a porch on the second-floor rooftop in order to escape the fire, which began before 8pm on Friday.

Eighteen-year-old Khanyae Kendall was later arrested and charged with aggravated assault and other offenses.

The Lehigh County coroner's office said 3-year-old Ashanti Hughes was pronounced dead just after 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest. A teenage boy and his father were also treated for smoke inhalation but have since been released.




Two other children and a firefighter are all still in critical condition following Friday night's blaze in the 2500 block of Lexington Street. Her death was ruled accidental.

Wolfson said that hoverboard buyers should ensure they see markings showing the products meet "Underwriters Laboratories standard 2272" - the best fire prevention safety standard.

"My granddaughter, I can't replace her", said Mark Hughes, who went to the scene of the fire Saturday and spoke exclusively to FOX43.

"Denny was a leader in our department and the fire service as a whole", Enterline said.

"When the officers arrived it was fully engulfed we have people trying to get back in the house to try and get people out from the building and the fire department arrived and made entry to the building they did remove several people from the building", said Olivera on Friday.
