Our deepest sympathy and sadness go out to the family of Deputy Chief James Dheron as well as the members of the New Brunswick Fire Department. This morning at 0303 hours the New Brunswick FD was dispatched to a house fire only six blocks from their fire headquarters. Chief Dheron arrived less than 2 minutes after the call was dispatched and entered the building to awake the sleeping families inside and get them out. His valiant efforts woke 15 residents who were able to get outside safely sadly Chief Dheron was unable to make it out of the building. Read Newspaper Article from the Home News Tribune.
