FDNY records no deaths in June, a first in department's 150-year history
Home page image
FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro revealed his department's recent success, with fewer fire fatalities citywide between 2010 and 2014 than during any five-year period on record.

FDNY smokeaters have a new reason to celebrate — June was the first month in the department’s 150-year history in which not a single person was killed in a fire in the five boroughs, the agency’s commissioner announced Thursday.

There had previously not been a month without a fire fatality since the department started keeping accurate records in 1916, said a spokesman for Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro.

The commissioner had more good news: In the past five years, between 2010 and 2014, there were fewer fire fatalities citywide than during any five-year period on record, he said.
