Two public viewings and a funeral are now scheduled for a Philadelphia firefighter who died when a fire-damaged building collapsed. The first viewing for Lt. Sean Williamson will take place Sunday at the Epiphany of Our Lord Church, while the second viewing and funeral will happen the next day at the same church, the Philadelphia Fire Department said. Williamson, a 27-year veteran of the department, was last assigned to Ladder 18 in the Nicetown-Tioga neighborhood, the PFD said. He died last week when a building collapsed following a fire in the Fairhill neighborhood. Four other firefighters and a Licensing and Inspections Department inspector had also been trapped but were pulled alive from the rubble, 1st Deputy Fire Commissioner Craig Murphy said.
