Family of Fallen Worcester Fire Department Lt. Jason Menard

During the early morning of Wednesday, November 13th a 4 alarm fire broke out in Worcester and we tragically lost Lt. Jason Menard.

Worcester Fire Chief Michael Lavoie said Lt. Jason Menard, a 39-year-old husband and father of three, died of his injuries after his “heroic efforts” to save people in the four-alarm fire at 7 Stockholm Street.

Lavoie said fire authorities received reports of a baby trapped on the third floor of the building as well as a report of a trapped resident around 1 a.m.

Menard “heroically” and “selflessly” helped a probationary firefighter to the stairs before returning into the flames to help another firefighter escape out the window.

We held an on-air fundraiser on November 13th, and matched all donations up to $15,000. In total, due to the generosity of so many, we were able to donate $275,000 Menard Family.
