1 firefighter killed, 2 seriously hurt in San Antonio fire

A San Antonio firefighter has died and two others are seriously hurt after a fire swept through the local shopping mall, where parts of the building collapsed and forced crews to retreat.

San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood says because the shopping center had a gym and because of the time of day they conducted a search hand rescue.

"We have firefighters that fought desperately tonight to try to save their friend's life", Hood said.

Firefighters were called to the scene about 9 p.m.

A Thursday night blaze at a shopping center led to the death of one firefighter and injuries for two others.

At least two firefighters were injured and transported to the hospital.

Before the fire, Matthew Christian Coronado, 25, massage therapy instructor at Milan Institute, said smoke began billowing in the front of the business, which is several stores away from where the fire started.

"It was a very rough decision to leave a firefighter behind". The body of Scott Deem was recovered once the blaze was extinguished. "But we're gonna continue to do the good job we always do", he said.

Since firefighters had to take a "defensive" approach in fighting the flames, fire officials say they had to make the hard decision to leave Deem behind.

Fighting back tears, the chief asked San Antonio to pray for the fire department.

About 100 firefighters saluted the ambulance that carried Deem to the Bexar County Medical Examiner's office early Friday morning.
