Another firefighter has lost his life to a 9/11-related cancer. Retired Firefighter Michael Duffy, a 20-year veteran of the department who spent time at Ground Zero after the terror attacks, died on Aug. 8, officials said Thursday. Duffy joined the FDNY in 1982 and spent his entire career at Engine 310 and Ladder 174 on Snyder Ave. in East Flatbush, known as “Snyder Island.” “He comes from a very proud firehouse,” Uniformed Firefighters Association President Gerard Fitzgerald said. “This is a terrific loss to the members of the firehouse, the retirees and people in the Gerritsen Beach community where he lived.”
