BROOKLYN, NY – Today, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08) issued the following statement:
“My prayers are with the family of Firefighter Timothy Klein and all the brave men and women of the New York Fire Department.
When the first responders reported to the fire in Canarsie this afternoon, they took immense risks to keep us all safe and tragically Mr. Klein died in service to his city. We mourn him.
My thoughts are also with the five other firefighters injured while on duty today. We are grateful for all their service.
May God watch over all those affected during this tragic time.”
