Man Killed in Berlin Fire Was Trying To Fight It
The man who died in a fire in Berlin Sunday was Edward Wedge, according to a news release from Troop F.
Wedge, 73, died of smoke inhalation, according to an autopsy conducted Monday
Investigators believe Wedge was working on a vehicle in his garage and it appears he tried to fight the fire.
In a written statement State Fire Marshal J. William Degnan said people should not attempt to fight fire in a building.
“You have as little as three minutes to escape a fire once it begins in your home,” he said.
