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.
