Ohio fire department making safety changes following firefighter's death 
The Hamilton Fire Department has announced major safety improvements following an internal investigation into the line of duty death of one of their own. Firefighter Patrick Wolterman died in December 2015 after responding to a fire believed to have trapped people inside a home. Wolterman was the first firefighter to enter the home. He ran into the burning home that morning because firefighters thought people could be trapped. Wolterman fell through the first floor and died of smoke inhalation.
