NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say a New York City firefighter and a civilian have died in a Brooklyn house fire where a ceiling partially collapsed. Acting Fire Department of New York Commissioner Laura Kavanagh said 31-year-old firefighter Timothy Klein was a six-year veteran of the department. An FDNY spokesperson said eight other firefighters were also injured in Sunday’s blaze, and another resident sustained minor injuries. The FDNY had said a civilian was unaccounted for after the fire. However a medical examiner will need to confirm the identity of the person found in the building. Mayor Eric Adams mourned Klein’s death, saying the city had lost one of its bravest.
