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 will be holding a fundraiser for the Menard Family starting on, November 13th, and matching all donations up to $15,000. Please consider making a donation to support the Menard Family in their time of need.
