DeVoe was blocks from the fire station to pick up his gear and joined his fellow firefighters at the scene. I'm so hurt. My soul is hurt'. Officials believe that the fire was sparked by a hoverboard that was recharging. 'The pain is so deep.

Fire Lt. Dennis DeVoe was responding to reports of the fire when his vehicle was hit at an intersection by 19-year-old Khanyae Kendall, who was reportedly driving a stolen vehicle. The girl's father and a teenage boy were treated and released for smoke inhalation. She was later arrested when she showed up to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.
