VIDEO: A six-year veteran of the FDNY and a civilian died Sunday in a Brooklyn house fire that trapped a team of firefighters after a partial ceiling collapse, city officials said. Firefighter Timothy Klein, 31, was one of more than 100 FDNY members responding to the Avenue N residence in Canarsie — that caught fire shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday — when conditions turned deadly. A second body was later recovered but could not be identified, the NYPD said. Hours earlier, city officials at a press briefing said one resident of the home could not be located. Firefighters were inside the residence when its deteriorating structure prompted officials to call for an evacuation, Acting Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh said. Before they could do so, Klein and three other FDNY members became trapped when part of the ceiling collapsed.
