FDNY: Firefighter dies in blaze in building used for movie
An FDNY firefighter from Floral Park died after battling a Harlem blaze Thursday night on the set of a film starring the actor Edward Norton, officials said.
Michael Davidson, 37, of Engine Co. 69, had been with the FDNY for 15 years and is from a family of firefighters, Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. His father is retired and had worked at the same Harlem firehouse; his brother works in the Bronx.
Davidson is survived by his wife, Eileen, and four young children — three daughters ages 7, 3 and 1 and a son, age 6, according to the FDNY.
