New York Firefighter Dies Battling Blaze On Set Of Movie

Ian Sampson 63 FDNY fire protection inspector and a seven-year veteran of the FDNY passed away

Authorities say at least one other person was injured and taken to an area hospital.

Eric Phillips, Mayor Bill de Blasio's press secretary, tweeted: "This is an terrible night".

"Motherless Brooklyn", the film being shot in the Harlem building that caught fire Thursday night, has been a passion project for Edward Norton, who spent almost 20 years trying to get the film off the ground. During attempts to extinguish the fire, conditions unfortunately turned fatal, and the FDNY announced early Friday morning that one of their own, Michael R. Davidson, was lost.

"Our entire department, our entire city, mourns this horrific loss of a very courageous firefighter", Nigro said. Davidson's brother, Eric, serves the city as a firefighter in the Bronx. "We watched firsthand with astonishment as they charged into the smoke to make sure all were safely out and then fought to contain the blaze and prevent it from spreading".

The production company behind Norton's film also issued a statement, calling FDNY firefighters "real life super-heroes" who "have our boundless admiration and gratitude". Several media critics such as Rotten Tomatoes, The Hollywood Reporter, and The Daily Beast gave the film high marks.

The movie Motherless Brooklyn is an adaptation of the book of the same name by Jonathan Lethem, which is set in 1950s New York City. Flames poured out the windows as firefighters stormed into the five-story Harlem building, dumping water on the blaze to get it under control.


Motherless Brooklyn, which stars Norton, Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin and Willem Dafoe, is slated to arrive in theaters later this year.

Norton may also not be vacationing with fellow actor Leonardo DiCaprio again anytime in the future. "He looked pretty upset", Evans said. This is insane, this fire.

She said she had known for weeks that a movie was being filmed across the street and became friendly with some members of the film crew, who were popular in the neighborhood because they allowed neighbors to pose for photos with the vintage cars. "Not a fire. damn".

The motorcade carrying firefighter Michael R. Davidson's body arrived Friday afternoon at a funeral home in Floral Park.

"As soon as we noticed smoke coming up into our set, our crew immediately alerted the fire department and began alerting residents of the building even as we evacuated our cast and crew", they said. According to neighbors, set decorations included a sign reading "King Rooster Jazz Club" that was set up outside the building.

"They started building the set two weeks ago and have been here every day", Nathan Monroe-Yavneh, a neighbour, told the Daily News of NY.
