Livestream, photos from funeral of fallen Philly firefighter

Pallbearers stand beside the coffin containing the body of fellow Philadelphia firefighter Lt. Matthew LeTourneau as his funeral procession makes its way along 18th Street before the Funeral Mass.

Shawn Duffy, a firefighter from Buffalo, N.Y., said it was a simple matter of solidarity: "We're all one family, no matter what city you're from".

A firefighter and a resident died after a two-alarm fire broke out in a North Philadelphia rowhome on Saturday, causing the interior of the home to collapse, according to officials and media reports. LeTourneau's casket rode atop Engine 45, the station where he worked.

"It touches home for all of us", said William Perez, vice president of the Camden Firefighters Local 788, who was joined for the Thursday viewing by about 30 other Camden firefighters. LeTourneau was 42. A person who lived in the home on North Colorado Street also was killed in the blaze.

The fire broke out at 8:51 a.m. and was put under control by 10:49 a.m., officials said. During firefighting operations, the second floor of the structure collapsed, trapping LeTourneau under rubble. Firefighters on the scene rescued LeTourneau and took him to the hospital, where he died from his injuries, . Firefighting conditions were extremely hard given the freezing temperatures, icy ground and snow-caked sidewalks.

Hundreds gathered to remember an 11-year Philadelphia Fire Department veteran who lost his life fighting a fire on Saturday. "He never wanted anyone to feel left out", Luke LeTourneau said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. As part of a regular rotation, LeTourneau was to be transferred to Engine 44 in Mantua on his next working day.

LeTourneau dreamed of being a firefighter since he was a young child. Here are details for those driving in the area of Philadelphia and Delaware County. "During 11 proud years as a member of the Philadelphia Fire Department, he was widely recognized and respected for his exceptional work and in 2015 he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant", said Kenney.

They filled the church - and led a procession to his burial in a Delaware County cemetery - on a dreary, rainy day nearly appropriate to mark the first loss of a city firefighter while battling a blaze since 2014. Some had met LeTourneau through his service as a fire instructor with the Delaware County Emergency Services Training Center or the Philadelphia Fire Academy.
