    One person was hospitalized for injuries in a two-alarm Wethersfield house fire on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015. The man later died, according to fire officials.

    A former firefighter who was pulled from a burning home on Brimfield Road in Wethersfield, Connecticut, last week has died, according to the Wethersfield Volunteer Fire Department.

    Firefighters identified the man as Keron Larkin. 

    "The pain of the tragic loss of Mr. Larkin, a long time Wethersfield resident and former Wethersfield firefighter, will be felt by every member of the Department and the entire community," the fire department said in a news release.   

    Firefighters responded to the fire in the single-story ranch house at 8:42 p.m. on Nov. 18 and found Larkin unconscious, on the living room floor.

    They pulled him from the house and to an ambulance waiting to take him to Hartford Hospital. 

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the Larkin family during this time of great sadness," the fire department said in a statement.
