Mayor Brandon Scott said on Saturday that he was filled with joy after watching the community come together to celebrate the lives of three Baltimore firefighters who died while battling a house fire in January. Scott made the comment in a social media post after planting a tree at Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School to honor fallen firefighters Lt. Paul Butrim, Lt. Kelsey Sadler, and Kenny Lacayo in West Baltimore on Earth Day. Scott was joined by students from Baltimore City Public Schools, volunteers, Baltimore City Fire Department Chief Niles Ford, and Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Jason Mitchell, according to DPW staff. DPW collaborated with Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School and Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy School on the Earth Day festivities, which took place in the 1400 block of Lafayette Avenue, staff said.
