Cause of CT fire that killed firefighter remains undetermined – Boston News, Weather, Sports

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – The cause of a fire that killed a New Haven firefighter a year ago could not be determined, but there appears to have been no crime, police said Thursday.

Ricardo Torres Jr., 30, died of asphyxia from the fire at a two-story home on May 12, 2021. Other firefighters found him unresponsive on the second floor after he radioed that he was under duress.

On Thursday, the anniversary of the death, New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker joined firefighters in a memorial service at the station where Torres was deployed.

The fire started in the basement of the home, but the cause is unknown due to the extent of the damage and a lack of evidence, state police said in a report of their investigation.

Another firefighter who was rescued from the building suffered injuries that have required a lengthy recovery, authorities said
