LFR reflects on San Antonio tragedy

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A shopping center blaze in San Antonio that claimed the life of a firefighter has become a sobering reminder for all firefighters including Lubbock Fire Rescue on the dangers of the job.

Division Chief Steve Holland said tragedies like the one show just how rapidly conditions change.

"I think all of us go in thinking we've got the best training and we are very well trained and we are aware of these circumstances, but things can happen so fast and rapidly," Holland said.

Holland said it is too early to tell if members of the Honor Guard or firefighters will go to San Antonio to help out, but will know for sure early next week.
