A fire started on the 5th floor of Lai Cheong factory building in Cheung Sha Wan at 8 am this morning. The blaze was so fierce that by 11am, it was classified as grade 4. Four firefighters were injured and were admitted to hospital. Two were said to be in serious condition and one had died. Kowloon fire chief Lee Hung Shum said the smoke was so intense, making it difficult for the firefighters to put out the fire. He went on to say they lost contact with the fireman who died in the fire at about 11am. They found him at 12:10, he was already unconscious. He was underneath some furniture when they found him. They managed to get him out of the building at 12:55pm and he was certified dead at 13:12pm at Princess Margaret Hiospital. The 47 year old dead fireman was named Yeung Chun Kit. He joined the fire service in 1984 and he was stationed at Lai Chi Kok fires station. The fire was put out at 14:24pm. The cause of fire is being investigated.

It's sad but I believe these men and women should and are already prepared for such a situation just like policeman .. dying in the line of duty. That's why these people get high salary despite their very little education.

RIP. What a dedicated firefighter, I am sure he will be sorely missed by his family and friends. Those who do these kinds of jobs require much courage and should be acknowledged more often then they are given credit for.
