December 2, 1995
-- Units were dispatched to a District Heights house fire with two children trapped. The house was very cluttered, making it very difficult to search but the children were located and removed from the house. Despite heroic efforts to revive them, they succumbed. One of the rescuers, Captain John H. Weaver, was awarded the Bronze Medal of Valor in April 1996 for his efforts to rescue the children.
