Governor Wes Moore today released the following statement regarding the Baltimore City Firefighters injured and killed in the line of duty:

“Our entire state grieves for the victims of the fire in northwest Baltimore that took the life of one firefighter and seriously injured four others last night. 

My heart goes out to all those affected, including the victims’ families, friends, and colleagues. We are praying for the swift recovery of those still being treated for wounds as we mourn the loss of EMT/Firefighter Rodney Pitts, III, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
